Our history

From 1901 to the present day…

The origins of the Vignerons du Pays d’Ensérune date back to the beginning of organized winegrowing with the construction of the first cooperative winery in France in the village of Maraussan in 1901.

Upholding the tradition launched by the Vignerons Libres de Maraussan, our cooperative winegrowers have preserved their ancestors’ knowledge over the years, and their same remarkable capacity for innovation. With each era they have shown courage and ambition with the creation of new economic models, while at the same time preserving and developing a powerful work ethic of mutual support.
