Chateau La Violette - NV.jpg

In the early 20th century, MR. BÉGU, a retired policeman, acquired a small parcel of grapevines at an auction. His son, PIERRE FERNAND, took over for his father in the 1950s and over the next ten-year period, replanted all the vines. Since 2002, it is his two daughters JOËLLE and MONIQUE who now run the vineyard. The name ‘VIOLETTE’ comes from memories of his youngest daughter JOËLLE. She recalls being a young child in the springtime collecting violets growing between the vine rows.
