In 1954 Yves Bonnin, cattle trader, bought the winery.

He overall wanted to exploit its natural grasslands. However from 1955 he undertook to renew the small existing vineyard and also made cultivate the waste lands.

In 1961, his son Gérard settled in Maine-Michaud and développed the wine production there, completly making up most of today's existing land plots and building the technical installations.

Over the years the farm enlarged itself with neighbor plots and, step by step, structured itself at the cost of significant efforts.

Installed as a winemaker since 1986, Thierry Bonnin added 5ha of grain lands to the 2.5ha of vines in the family-owned farm. He therfore undertook an investment politic to develop his products quality and ensure its packaging and selling from the winery.
