Hours: Year Round
The name VIDON (vee-dohn) comes from Vicki and Don, founders of VIDON vineyard. It is also the name of a French Intellectual Property law firm headquartered in Rennes and founded by Patrice Vidon. We were invited by Patrice and visited him in 2011 at his Chateau near St. Malo that was built in 1670 .
Don's vision for VIDON was shaped by two life experiences - having been born and raised on a farm in North Dakota and living in France on a post-graduate assignment. As a result, he likes farming and he loves good Burgundy wines. This led to his plan to develop a small vineyard with a winery that produced premium estate Pinot Noir wines. He does most of the work himself except for the vineyard hand labor, something he's not afraid of - there's real pleasure in developing new skills and creating something from scratch. He believes that "it's the journey, not the destination" that is most satisfying.
