Domaine Grand Tinel

The Grand Tinel Estate is the fruit of two ancient families from Popal Times and were already well known in the XVIth century ; Establet and Jeune. The word “Grand Tinel”in the XVIth century , meant in Latin, a keg, but also , a cellar: in countries of Latin origin, it also designated the dining room. At present , it means the ageing cellar.

Already under Louis the XVth,in 1770, Francois Establet owned a vineyard in Chateauneuf Calcenier, called “the Popes”. In 1836, Alexis Establet bought more vines in the Escairvins area.
But it was his son, Georges Establet, who acquired parcels of the Gardiole in 1846, which still represent the heart of the estate along with the “Moulin a Vents” formerly called “ Moulin de l’Auro”.

It was then Marius Establet who created the estate of the ‘Petite Gardiole” and commercialised his wines in big kegs.

His son, born in1906, Charles Establet, continued to sell in big kegs and began to bottle wines from the Petite Gardiole for his friends.
Born in 1904, Lucien Jeune owned vines in the area called Boubcou and Pied Redon. In the 1930’s he transported wine, then became mayor of Chateauneuf for 25 years.

In the 1960’s, the two estates became one when Christiane Establet and Pierre Elie Jeune married.

The Grand Tinel Estate was born in 1972. In 1974, they began the construction of the winery, with a capacity of 4,600 hectolitres, on three levels: the basement reserved for the ageing cellar with oak barrels and kegs, the ground floor for the vinification and arrival of the grapes in the cellar, and the first floor for the offices, the oenological laboratory, plus a part of the vinification vats.

The same philosophy has been perpetrated by Christophe Jeune and his two sisters, Beatrice and Isabelle, with the addition of offices, a tasting room, a bottling system, storage of bottles and a shipping area in 2004-2005.
