    Initially the cultivation of vines was by the use of horses. Property sizes were therefore suited to the amount of work a man could accomplish, the workforce being measured by the fact that one man and one horse could work about seven hectares of land.  It was only after the Second World War that the first tractors appeared, between 1950 and 1960, thus transforming the agricultural methods and landscape.

    Previously three generations had lived off the land and produced their own food, the Guige and Rochier families.

  • René Boisson (1919 -1991) was the first member of the Boisson family to cultivate vines.  He was born to a family of five children whose parents came to the region to work on the land. René himself had also worked as an agricultural employee in Côtes du Rhône production.  With the arrival of the Second World War he joined the Resistance.  After the war, in 1946, he married Reine Rochier. In 1957 he established his own wine cellar and added to the land by buying a 10-hectare wood, which he cleared and then planted with vines. The process took him five years and all his savings. He handed down this land, called Le Clos de la Brussière, to his future generations.

  • Régis Boisson, born 19 Spetember, 1949, is the only son of René and Reine.  After training in wine production at the Technical College in Orange he took over the family business in 1971.  He, in turn, further developed the wine production and extended the cellar used for vinification, with his wine being sold in bulk to wholesalers in the trade.  In 1986 he decided to bottle part of his own wine production, starting with Côtes du Rhône, then Cairanne, and later Rosé.
    Today, working with his son Bruno, he manages the Domaine.  He is responsible for the maintenance and protection of the vineyards, the marketing to French-speaking clients and administration.

  • Bruno Boisson, son of Régis, born 7 March 1978, in charge of foreign markets. He started working on the Domaine in 1999 after completing training in Oenology in Burgundy, and a placement in the Barossa Valley, Australia.  Through his involvement, it was possible to spend time in researching and developing the specific character of the wines of the Domaine Boisson.  His particular responsibilities are the management of the vines themselves – disbudding, thinning of the leaves-, the vinification and export.
