Came originally from Savoy, the de Mestrals were first declared in Mont in the year 1258. Mont was originally a part of the duchy of Savoy, and Pierre being the supervisor of the citadel. The lands owned by Louis de Savoie is a major fascination of the place. A 15th century construction, the Maison Blanche, or White House, was primarily a fortified salt depot and had a garnison to protect it. The commander of a battalion, Jean de Mestral, at the service of Francois I turned it into a wine estate, in 1526.
The estate consists of 5 ha land; mostly the distinctive Swiss grape is the Chasselas, ideally located on the coast of the lake of Geneva (Swiss side). Here, the maestro cultivates in a few specialties, with a lot of feel, aptitude and fervor and in a very few quantities. A controlled policy of limited yield and growing the wine like the olden days, in oaken casks comes with a wine which is more specific of the region. These are characterized by fruity and yet dry. Here wines are produced both in traditional and modern methods and thus to keep harmony with nature.
