WHO ARE ‘LES VIGNERONS CRÉATEURS’ ?
”These are committed producers just outside Nîmes!”
Les Vignerons Créateurs cooperative was formed in 2009 as a result of merging together 5 local cooperatives found in the Gard: Bellegarde, Jonquières-St-Vincent, Manduel, St-Gilles and Bouillargues. This collective brings together 100 winegrowers who cultivate a total of more than 1,200 hectares of vines, stretching from the Pont du Gard to the area of Petite Camargue, just outside Nîmes.
By joining forces together, these local cooperatives have ensured the continued existence of an historic expertise that has been recognised since 1924!
Every day, we are committed to preserving our land and our terroirs within our vineyards.
Each year, the grapes from our vineyards enable us to offer our customers quality wines for all their social occasions.
Bruno Manzone, Chairman, and Frédéric Sénac, Director run the winery together, and assure us that “through our cooperative commitment, we are looking both to the future, and to others, whether they are cooperators, employees or consumers. Our wines are the product of teamwork and a reflection of our knowledge and expertise. We know how to meet both your expectations and your needs.”

Les Vignerons Créateurs A group of men and women who share common values and have created a common tool to pool strengths, skills and production resources. Each and every winegrower is involved in the wine-making process and in decision-making.
Together in the vineyards
The diversity of our terroirs, grape varieties and appellations enables us to meet the ever-changing needs of consumers in the 21st century.
Convinced that there is strength in unity, Les Vignerons Créateurs have chosen to surround ourselves with qualified technicians who are able to provide us with the necessary expertise and control in the vineyard: mutual help, advice, and assistance in parcel selections, all of which enables the production of quality grapes.
Concerned about our environment, we are moving forward together to obtain environmental certifications. As a result, since 2020, 96.6% of our vineyards have successfully obtained one or more environmental certifications (HVE, BIO and Terra Vitis).
The winegrowers have passed on their know-how over the generations, some of them since the cooperatives were founded. Les Vignerons Créateurs is a large family that contributes to the development and dynamism of our local region and our precious terroirs.
Together in the cellars
Our mission is to reveal, for each of our cuvées, the passionate work of our winegrowers.
The merger of our 5 cooperatives has enabled us to pool our technical resources, make optimum use of them and invest in modern tools.
The team of oenologists and cavistes enable the expression of the different terroirs while guaranteeing the quality of the products, thanks in particular to the complete traceability of grapes from plot to final product. This is the philosophy chosen by Vignerons Créateurs.
This is how the winery manages to reconcile modernity and authenticity, while respecting the environment.

Our diversity enables us to offer local, emblematic, must-haves and timeless wines, all chosen through rigorous selection process, to both professionals and private customers.
