In 1929, three passionate winemakers, one of which was Monsieur Camille Cayran, used the philosophy ‘quality over quantity’ to create the Côtes du Rhône Villages – Cairanne appellation. Almost 40 years later, this appellation was made official. Since then, CAVE DE CAIRENNE has continuously built its reputation and recognition through its exceptional winemaking and pioneering philosophy.
