Nothing predestined Christine and Stéphanie to take over the family estate of La Baudelière, in Aigle. Mother and daughter were able to transform a bad stroke of fate, the accidental death of Pierre-André, Christine's brother, into a successful adventure. Christine swapped her nurse's gown and Stéphanie, once her matu was in her pocket, continued on the school benches in Changins to become an oenologist. With passion, the two winegrowers have combined competence, Christine in the vineyard and Stéphanie in the cellar, for necessarily feminine wines with all finesse. On the 3.5 ha vineyard of the estate, planted in the Aigle and Yvorne appellations, the duo is delighted. To the classic Chasselas have been added a range of grape varieties - Riesling, Pinot noir, Gamay, Dornfelder, Mondeuse, Syrah, Cabernet sauvignon, Cabernet franc, Merlot - that the vinification sublime.

Gustave, Georges, Claude, Norbert and today Serge - a HES engineer from Changins - have perpetuated the family tradition, while innovating.
