The story begins with my great-grandfather whose name is Ulysse. He was a nursery gardener and winemaker in Reignac (Gironde, a départment in France). In January 1923, he acquires Saint-Ciers's memorial. At the beginning, only 4 hectares can be exploited. vignes sont à exploiter.
One month later, his son called René borns. René will success to his father at the end of the second World War. Also the plot will grow from 4 to 10 hectares. During this time, René marries Ginette Falmer, who possesses her own wineyard and who's of Charente origin.
In 1983, René gives the vines and the property to his first son, my father Jean-Pierre EYMAS. Thanks to a high quality work and perfect rigour, the winery continues to expand during a few years.
I am 10 years old and my destiny is clear : I want to be a winemaker as my father. Two years later, I'm driving the tractor among the vineyard, before rejoining my father during school holidays. I'm saying I dont have homework. And it's a confirmation ! This job is made for me because I love this link to the land and to all is all around. Passion is here in my heart and in my teenager's body.
My son is preparing the future. He works to preserve this strong and long heritage. His name is Ulysse, like his great-great-grand-father, a legitimate homecoming.
