Ernest Pellé: (1904-1985)
A country man, Mayor of his little village, and great lover of the land, as you could always tell from his hands. The focus of his business gradually shifted to wine production and his vine nursery. He passed away in 1985 with three generation already in place: Henry, Eric and Paul-Henry.
Henry Pellé: (1930- )
The wine labels have long carried his name, and rightly so: Henry is the founding father, the man with the ambition, the first to envisage the creation of a “domaine”. It was he who invested all his time and money to achieve what we have today. He still lives in Morogues.
Alberte Pellé: (1931-2011)
A farmer’s daughter before marrying Henry, her firm hand was instrumental to the growth of the Domaine. She handled the office work with tireless energy until 2001.
Eric Pellé: (1956-1995)
The son and grandson of a winemaker, Eric grew up in Morogues and was naturally destined to become a winemaker. His enthusiasm and charisma brought with them fresh ideas and new markets.
1995: His premature death was a great loss to the Domaine, his family and to the village as a whole.
Anne Pellé: (1959-)
In marrying Eric, Anne became the Grande Dame of the Domaine. She still is; from the family’s office she conveys the image and values of the Domaine.
Julien Zernott: (1973- )
Julien looked after the estate’s wines following the death of Eric and until Paul-Henry took over. At the same time, he set up his own estate on the Larzac terraces of the Languedoc: the excellent Pas de l’Escalette (see links).
Paul-Henry Pellé: (1985-)
Anne and Eric’s son, the next winemaker…today’s winemaker. He is now further refining the work in the vineyards and the cellars. The winery and the wines’ packaging have enjoyed a makeover. The future is a blank sheet full of promise and opportunity.
