The Garon family have one of the longer histories in the Northern Rhone Valley that dates all the way back to 1475, starting with Guillaume Garon. However, the modern era for Domaine Garon begins in 1995, when they began to bottle and sell their own wine. The Garon family began replanting the vineyards in 1982. At the time, the land had gone fallow, so it was quite an undertaking.

Small amounts of wine were made in 1992. They truly began producing a fair amount of wine by 1995.

Domaine Garon owns 5 hectares of vines in Cote Rotie. The vineyards are divided with some parcels on the Cote Blonde and other vines being planted on the Cote Blonde. Their vines are planted to 100% Syrah in the Rochains, Triotes, Lancement, Combard and Mollard lieux-dits.

Domaine Garon is a traditional Cote Rotie producer. The grapes are crushed in whole bunches. The amount of destemming varies, depending on the vintage. Vinification takes place in stainless steel tanks. The wines are aged in an average of 30% new, French oak barrels and the remainder is aged in 5 year old barrels for between 18 to 24 months.

Varietals: Grenache, Syrah, Carignan
