Charles et Thérèse NOIZET, the parents of Jeanne Petit and maternal grand parents of Bernard PETIT, own a small farm where they raise livestock and also cultivate a few plots, including vines.
In the 1950s, Louis PETIT becomes a winery worker at the « Château du Nozet » where he learns the art of winery. He leaves this job in 1969 to work with Jeanne, his spouse, on their own wine-growing business.
In 1973, the first bottles are produced by Louis PETIT. The business being along National Highway 7 is convenient for direct sales.
