Robert Gilliard Company
This estate was founded in 1886 and is now operated by the fifth generation of this family. Located high above the Rhône River in the Valais area, the soil of Robert Gilliard's vineyards consists of granite and slate with very steep walls ("Les Murettes").
Working on the principle of quality before profit, the House of Gilliard keeps the average of its vines at about twenty years. It is only around the tenth year, in fact, that a vine will give of its best. Gilliard is aware of the need to protect the environment and the purity of the wine, and therefore has adopted an integrated approach to plant protection on its estates. Only "soft" methods are used, i.e. treatments which do not harm the natural environment or adversely affect the quality of the final product.
