The history of the the Lignères family is one of doctors with wine in their veins. André, a general practitioner and Suzette, a pharmacist, have been followed by their children Jean, the village doctor in Moux like his father, his wife Anne, Paul, a dentist and Geneviève a pharmacist-biologist. The family’s ties to the wine world can be traced back to the sixteenth century. Louis Lignères founded la Maison de Vins in 1890, but it was in 1957 that André and Suzette Lignères bought la Baronne estate. Since then they have gradually expanded the domaine, acquiring the most attractive terroirs of the Montagne d’Alaric. The La Baronne vineyard is planted on limestone, clay, and sandstone terroir, which forces the old-vine Carignan, Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre vines to struggle and dig deep. The vineyards at Château La Baronne are certified organic by Ecocert.
