The Domaine des Ardoisières is located in Savoie on the Coteaux de Cevins and Saint-Pierre-de-Soucy. The estate was founded in 1997 following the replanting of the fallow vineyard by Denis Perroux, the village mayor. This project came to fruition in 1998 with the first planting of the local grape variety called Altesse and the first harvest took place in October 2002. A few months later, Denis Perroux met Brice Omont (a winemaker passionate about biodynamics) and Michel Gisard (an agricultural engineer from Champagne). Since 2008, they have been at the head of the Domaine des Ardoisières which now covers 16 hectares. The estate is biodynamically managed.
