In 1735 our ancestor,
In is grandfather Fernand’s cellar and at the family table, François PETIT learnt how to appreciate the wine from our terroirs.
A hard-working farmhand in Rosay in Eure-et-Loir, he always nurtured his love of wines and the vine. He spent twenty years visiting vineyards, making then shelving plans, until finally on a spring day in 1998 his insight led him to create Tournefeuille in the Lalande de Pomerol appellation area.
Then Emeric PETIT, his wine-loving son, took over the estate.
The Petit family were joined by a childhood friend of François’, Francis CAMBIER, who had always believed in their project.
They all bring a new vision to wine-growing, without abandoning their country roots, experience and their values, which could be summed up in the phrase :
“Tournefeuille wine is the fruit of patience and equilibrium”.
