Cook by training but was fascinated by the wine, François Villard began to acquire his first lands, in spring, 1989, on the municipality of Saint Michel (place says Poncins) in naming Condrieu. These first 400 bottles will be for sale in autumn, 1992. Today, the Domain Francois Villard account 30 ha and about twenty vintages. These numerous wines are under various naming such as Condrieu, Saint Joseph, Côte-Rôtie or still Saint Péray.
Francois Villard works brilliantly the viognier but also more recently the syrah. Every vintage wine inspires him. Both in plays on words to baptize his vintages and to create it of news. Which explains the multiplication of labels (until 18!), which has enough to make get confused of cellar in the most eclectic of the oenophiles. This self-taught likes the concentrated and late grape harvests, to fetch not the surmaturité but the perfect maturity.
