François had worked with his father and older brother since 1988 at Domaine Louis Carillon, where he was responsible for the vineyards. Given recent family history, there is an expectant air about this domaine: François is a sixteenth-generation vigneron but is setting out on a new, exciting venture. After their father retired, François and his brother took over the family Domainet. The brothers elected amicably to split the estate holdings and thus Domaine François Carillon was established in 2010. The domaine consists of 6.5 hectare. The Domaine has been participating in an environmentally-friendly approach, that is, as organically as possible, with no weed-killers are used.
