History

Created at the beginning of the 20th century by the grand father of the actual owner, CAROD wineries are located in the heart of the Diois appellation.

The 40 hectares are situated on both sides of the Vallée de la Drôme on a mountainous terroir, especially on a marly and clay-limestone one.

Under climatic influences from the high plateaux of Vercors (peaks over 2,000 meters) and from the Drôme, the vineyard enjoys sunny days and cool nights and distinct seasons with warm summers and cold winters often snowy.

In the 40’s Paul Barnier and Amade Carod, his son-in-law, produced and sold their first bottles of Clairette de Die. Twenty years later, Alain, the eldest son of Amade,joined the family business and bought a few hectares of vines.

Shortly afterwards, he is joined on the family farm by his brother. Together they extended the estate and increased their product’s sales. In 2008 Alain and Marcel Carod decided to give away their business to Les Grands Chais de France. For over 50 years, Carod estate has slowly developed itself adapting its buldings and acquiring high-tech tools. All storage halls are thermo-regulated and the winery has three different bottling lines. On the other hand, Carod wineries are certified by ECOCERT for the transformation and the wine making process of grapes from organic farming.

Carod has several rooms dedicated to Clairette de Die and to local traditions from the beginning of the 20th century with a panoramic view of their cellars and a ten minutes documentary on the vineyard and Clairette de Die making process.
