Domaine Serguier History, Overview

Domaine Serguier dates back to 1900 as an estate, when it was created by Hippolyte Serguier. Hippolyte Serguier did not need to look far for the inspiration to find a name for the vineyard. Like many people of the day, he simply used his last name and a new winery was born. However, it took until 1920 for Domaine Serguier to begin to produce, bottle and sell their own wine in the Southern Rhone Valley.

The property remains in the hands of the same family today. If you’re having trouble finding older vintages of Domaine Serguier and you never see any, that is because the vineyard was leased to Pierre Usseglio from 1970 until 1997. While the current manager of Domaine Serguier, Daniel Nury took over in 1993, it was not until the contracts expired that the modern era for Domaine Serguier was able to begin.
