Description

Although the Tardy family has been growing grapes for five generations, they only began to estate-bottle their Crozes-Hermitage in 1979. Charles Tardy created the Domaine des Entrefaux in 1979. In the 1990s, his son François, now accompanied by his wife Anne, joined him.

They farm 22 hectares of Syrah on the pebbly limestone terrace of Les Chassis, known for producing the finest Crozes-Hermitage reds and a further 6 hectares of white varieties, mainly Marsanne with a little Roussanne. In 2000, they began implementing organic farming practices, and in 2013, they earned their official certification.
