The Quiot family owns Château du Trignon
Winemakers since as long as 1748, the Quiot family are known for producing a huge range of wines in the Rhone Valley and Provence region. Genevieve, Jerome, Jean-Baptiste, and Florence Quiot run many wineries in the region, including Château du Trignon. The estate was bought by the Roux family in 1896 and was a traditional livestock farm. Future generations shifted the focus on wines and expanded the estate covering nearby regions of Rasteau, Gigondas, and Coted du Rhone.
Qualitative Approach at the Winery
In 2007, the Quiot family were mesmerized by the Dentelles de Montmirail and bought the estate, further adding ten hectares of Vacqueyras. The mission was to adopt the land and use its grapes to complement their big wine range, respecting the tradition and quality. Throughout the history of the family, they have constantly expanded the estate in some of the best regions of the place. At Château du Trignon, construction of a gravity winery also took place along with adaptation and planting of various grape types.
Best Products of the Winery
Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault, Viognier, Marsanne, Roussanne, and Muscat Blanc are the grape varieties grown in the vineyards belonging to the company. The best grapes are used to produce red, white, rose, and dessert wines. Some of the best wines made here are Viognier White, Marsanne White, Roussanne White, Sablet Red, Plan de Dieu, and many more. The Quiot family works hard to maintain the high-quality of their wines and uphold the family tradition.
