Created by Etienne Grangeon in the 1950s, the property originally spread over 2 hectares of Grenache grew under the leadership of Alain, his son, who joined the estate in 1963. Passionate about viticulture, he notably contributed to the expansion of the estate by planting improving grape varieties such as Syrah and Mourvèdre and thus creating the Cristia identity, based on knowledge and respect for its predominantly sandy soils.
When Baptiste and Dominique joined their father in 1999, their priorities were to orient their work towards an optimal plot selection so as to produce high quality wines in bottles and to market them both in France and in France. for export.
Today, 3 generations of winegrowers share their passion and their know-how on the 42 hectares of Domaine de Cristia, spread over the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellations (18 hectares of red and 1 hectare of white), Côtes-du -Rhône Villages (9 hectares), Côtes-du-Rhône (5 hectares) and Vin de Pays (9 hectares).
Many projects were added and made the Domaine de Cristia grow, build itself and become more and more anchored within the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation. Discover the biggest project in the "The Cristia experience" section ...
