Our history

  • 1955
    The creation of Aramon’s cave coopérative

    After the acquisition of the private winery of Mr Marcelin Ramel, several vine growers from Aramon joined forces and ceased their home wine-making.

  • 1956
    We are joined by the first cooperative members from our neighbouring village, Théziers.

    The Cave Cooperative d’Aramon-Théziers is born.

  • 1957
    Amour Imbert, the secretary to the Board of Directions, is named director of the cave cooperative.

  • 1962
    The Marquess André de Sauvan d’Aramon is named President of the cave cooperative.

    Our joint director and president structure (Amour Imbert and the Marquess d’Aramon respectively) works brilliantly allowing the cave cooperative to found a solid decision-making base.

    Around 150 cooperative members: a few years after the creation of the cooperative, the number of members is at its highest.

  • Années 1960
    Qualitive improvements
      • Commercially: the implementation of joint selling
        From now on, the cave cooperative sells the wine of its members. It’s no longer solely a place to vinify the wines. It has now become a place to sell it. This is a turning point for the commercialisation of the wines.
      • In the vineyards
        An increase in certain grape varieties, like Grenache, as well as the introduction of new ones, like Syrah. The disappearance of hybrid varieties.
    • In the winery
      The expansion of the building and the addition of new concrete tanks.
  • 1973
    Roland Firmin becomes President.

  • 1983
    Fabrice Imbert, son of Amour Imbert, succeeds as the director.

    In collaboration with Phillippe Coullomb, the cellar master, who joined the business in the same year, they form an operational duo which allows the cave cooperative to make great headway in the oenological quality (plasticisation of the vats, temperature control, micro-oxygenation, etc.).

    Around a hundred cooperative members: the building of the Sanofi site in 1963 in the village of Aramon created many new jobs. Over the years, many vine growers ceased their activity, which become ever more unviable.



  • Années 1990
    Further improvement of the vineyards’ quality

    Introduction of new grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Mourvèdre.

  • 1991
    Vinification of the first rosés
  • Années 2000
    Ever-increasing vineyard quality 

    Introduction of new grape varieties: Marselan and Chardonnay.

  • 2001
    Classification of the part of the vineyards as AOP Côtes du Rhône

  • 2003
    Further improvements

    The implementation of a Cahier des Charges to regulate the grape supply.

    Around 30 cooperative members: within our region, viticulture is becoming ever more specialised and this increases the quality. The acquisition, bit by bit, of small (if not tiny) parcels by bigger vineyards is becoming more and more common.

  • 2013
    Vinification of the first whites
  • 2014 & 2019
    Expansion and modernisation of the winery

    These two modernisations of the winery allow us to create wines in harmony with current consumer trends.

  • 2020
    Reworking of the wine range after the creation of new cuvées.
  • 2 juin 2020
    The grand opening of the caveau

    A dozen Familles de Vignerons: a decrease in the number of cooperative members, even though the area of the vineyard is on the increase ever since its creation!

    Our very first caveau is born, decorated with the art of local artist, Jacques Mounet, and our new wines.

  • 2022
    Creation of our very first internet site.


Sandrine IMBERT

Sandrine IMBERT

Assistant to the director

With a father in winemaking who is also the director of the cave cooperative, Sandrine has been immersed in the world of wine from her earliest years. After graduating from business school and gaining experience in other vineyards, it’s only natural she should come home to the company she’s witnessed expanding and evolving.

Fabrice IMBERT

Fabrice IMBERT


Born into a world surrounded by wine, Fabrice succeeded his father in the management of the cave cooperative in 1983. Vines are his passion and he has also cultivated his own parcels. This is rare in that director is also a fully-fledged member of the cave cooperative.



Cellar master

From his beginnings in the butcher trade, to the wine… worlds in which the notion of “living well” reign… This is the perfect description for Philippe, the life and soul our winery, since he is THE cellar master since June 1983.
