Located in the Rhône region in southeastern France, the winery of La Grand Comtadine was built in 1929 and had two adjacent hectares of vineyards. The origin of the vineyards on and surrounding the property predate the devastating 1860’s blight of Phylloxera. The upkeep of the vineyards was further affected by economic hardship, the First World War and its aftermath.
