Name: Brunel Andre Les Cailloux

Our family has been in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape region since the 17th century and has been fully committed to making wine for five generations. As of the 17th century, the wine-making activity of our family was testified by the purchase of a vineyard plot from the Bishop of Avignon to the north of the appellation. Numerous generations followed on, all working in the vineyards but it was only in 1954 that Lucien Brunel created the name Les Cailloux to develop the business and promote the Domaines wine qualities and special characteristics. From that time one, it was referred to as the Domaine Les Cailloux. In 1971, André Brunel took over the reins of the Domaine. His endless motivation resulted in a rapid growth for the Domaine: repurchasing of Côtes du Rhône and Vins de Pays vines, and launch of the infamous Centenary Cuvée in 1989. He also made some considerable changes in the vine management process by being one of the first people in Châteauneuf-du-Pape to use the ground covering method and to proceed with a non-chemical approach to wine-farming. In 2012, his son, Fabrice Brunel, joined the team so the family history can continue.
