Bérioles, a family history
As a young graduate in agriculture, Olivier Teissèdre acquired the domaine in 1976. It is located in the heart of Saint Pourçain’s vineyard, at the foot of the church of Cesset village. In those times, the farm was dedicated to cereals culture only.
But in 1989, his wife, decided to diversify of activities at the estate. Odile and Olivier then became owners of « Clos des Bérioles » and planted the first 9000 vines on the « Climat des Bérioles ». For the following 22 years, the Teissèdre family developed the viticulture to reach a farming vine surface of 8ha.
In 2011, their son Jean Teissèdre decided to join the family estate after strong experiences in the vineyards of Burgundy and Loire Valley. Passionate about viticulture, Jean created the winery of « Domaine des Bérioles » the same year. The building itself takes its foundation from an ancient typical ‘Bourbonnais’ farm. It meant the start of the vinification and the commercialization of the wine bottled at the property. Four vintages later, Sophie and Jérôme Roux, Jean’s sister and brother in law, joined the estate to participate in the family venture. Together, they decided to officialise the Organic Agriculture label for the 15ha vineyard spread over both villages of Cesset and Saulcet.
In 2018, members of the Teissèdre family created « Bérioles Strolls », 5 oenotouristic strolls conceived to share their passion for viticulture but also communicate their commitment to the heritage, the history and gastronomy of this terroir.
“Nunc sit amet turpis”
After a viticulture-oenology BETC Higher National Diploma in Davayé Mâcon and numerous experiences in some estates in Beaujolais and Sancerre, Jean settled in 2011 at the family estate and created the winery where the wine would be vinified in Cesset.
Following a specialization at the Wine University of Suze la Rousse (26) Sophie had a great experience at the « Domaine de Montine » for 14 years. In 2015 she joined her brother Jean at the Bérioles.
Once he had gained his viticulture-oenology BETC Higher National Diploma, Jérôme joined the « Domaine de Montine » (26) and became the winemaker in charge. He met Sophie and decided to join the « Domaine des Bérioles » in 2015 with her.
