Family History

After battling to reconstruct the French vineyards destroyed by the wine blight (phylloxera aphid) right through to the latest genetic selection techniques, the Guillaume family have always been wholly dedicated to grapevine growing. 

The Guillaume family has been grafting vines in Charcenne, France, since 1895. Our knowledge and experience has been passed on from generation to generation enabling our company to evolve and develop constantly. Today we endeavour to move forward and our success combined with efficiency has earned us ongoing recognition in the international grapevine industry.

The origin of the French nursery dates back to a time when the Franche-Comté region had to restore its vineyard after the Phylloxera epidemic. At the time, Albert Guillaume started grafting vines and set up a nursery selling plants in several wine-producing areas of France. 

At the end of the development of hybrids in 1954, Henri Guillaume assumed control of the business and had an active part in the reconstruction of the Bourgogne and Champagne Vineyards. 

And since 1983, his son Pierre-Marie Guillaume  has continued to expand and develop the company, which has steadily grown on an international scale, focusing on research and genetic selection.

Today the Pepinieres Guillaume is ranked as one of the world’s finest vine growers. Our company seeks to develop its activities by means of two key values : QUALITY and INNOVATION.

Highy skilled research and genetic selection enables us to offer our viticultural customers the world over a wide range of plants of distinction which answer to all their requirements.

Values that have guided us for over 120 years

For over 120 years the fundamental values that have guided the Pepinieres Guillaume are : 

  • A foundation of mutual hard work 
  • Dedication to customer satisfaction
  • Expertise and innovation

Genetic Selection

A wine growing business of distinction and quality is founded on genetic selection. Indeed, premium wines are created first of all in the vineyard ; the quality of the vines and the choice of selections are therefore the key factors to success.

The Pepinieres Gauillaume were amongst the first business partners to propose French clone selection and are still endeavouring to improve the genetic selection of numerous grape varieties.
