Founded in the 12th century by the Lord of Beauregard, the Domaine de La Beylesse is a fortified farmhouse. Theater of religious wars, it was burnt down during the French Revolution. Owned by the Nodin family since 1910, Rémy and his wife Amandine are the fourth generation. They continue to write the history of the oldest active domain in Saint-Péray.


Adolphe Nodin & Marguerite Courbis marries Nodin

Adolphe Nodin comes from a line of farmers in Mazel, in the commune of Champis. At the age of 21 he returned to the service of the Emperor Napoleon III in the 2nd regiment of riflemen in 1864. 2 years later, he became a rifleman of the Imperial Guard then joined the Empress's Dragons regiment on March 1st, 1867 until the end of the Franco-German war in 1871.

Orphaned by his father at the age of 2, Ernest grew up in La Blache du Mazel in the town of Champis. In 1907, he left the farm to his older brother and decided to settle in Saint-Péray with his wife where they had the opportunity to become farmers at La Beylesse.
The First World War forced Ernest to go to the front in 1914. His wife Louise was left alone with their 4 children. She takes care of milking cows, planting cereals, harvesting and vinifying.
Louise writes to Ernest every day. She sends him clothes, but also bottles of sparkling Saint-Péray that Ernest tastes with his comrades. In return, he writes her advice on crop management and selling strategy.
Back in 1918, Ernest is surely a bruised man. In 1936, he planted the Suchat vineyard with his son Paul, which is still in production today. This vine is the common thread between the four generations.


Paul Nodin & Blanche Pabion marries Nodin

Paul is the eldest of the siblings. The departure of his father for the war pushed him very early on to take on responsibilities. Blanche also experienced the absence of her father during the Great War. With Paul she gives birth to 3 children.
The Second World War forced the family to left out La Beylesse for a few days in 1944 during the Landing period in the Mediterranean sea. La Beylesse, a strategic place on the national road 86, was the place of skirmishes between Germans, resistance fighters and Americans. After the war, Paul became a founding member of the Saint-Péray fruit cooperative and delivered his grape harvest to the cooperative of Tain l'Hermitage. A builder at heart, Paul has a talent for carpentry. He built wooden buildings, frameworks and furniture that made La Beylesse a prosperous structure .


François Nodin & Bernadette Boule marries Nodin

Bernadette Boule is the daughter of a winemaker in Saint-Germain in southern Ardèche. She married Francois Nodin in 1970. Her mother was worried about letting her daughter go to the Rhone Valley where fog is frequent!
Their company begins at the end of the “Trente Glorieuses” period. The proximity of the city and the agricultural situation forced them to stop breeding and specialize. Supported by his wife, François is an entrepreneur and a true manager. They professionalize their business. In 1971, they launched the direct sale to consumers of their fruits. They regroup the domain weakened by the successions and develop the arboreal production on the commune of Soyons. At a time when the “Saint-Pérollais” viticulture was in a inexorable decline, in 1985 they had the audacity to replant the hillside of La Beylesse with vines, abandoned to pastures for several decades.
The dynamism of François calls him to become a municipal councilor of Saint-Péray and to pursue this commitment by two terms of deputy mayor. He was also president of the Saint-Péray supply cooperative and president of the “Syndicat d'Irrigation de la commune de Soyons”.
He could not have completed this estate without the unwavering support of Bernadette. A few days before his death on May 1st, 2012, he confided to Bernadette his satisfaction with a job well done, that their six children have a home and that they are launched into active life.


Remy Nodin & Amandine Belle marries Nodin

Rémy Nodin represents the fourth generation. At the age of 22, he created the Rémy Nodin estate with 1 hectare of Saint-Péray leased to his parents. Its first vintage 2008 is not long in getting noticed. Gone are the days when the child crushed his grapes and was surprised to produce only vinegar!
Rémy is driven by the duty to honor his ancestors and perpetuate the estate. "If it is true that the wine is in the image of the winemaker, which is its charm, it is not presumptuous to imagine that the wines of the Domaine de la Beylesse are in the image of its winemaker, noble and generous” (Hélène de Montgolfier, Cornas Le petit arpent du Bon Dieu, edition Au fils du Rhône)
Minemakers’ wives have always played an essential role. Like Margueritte, Louise, Blanche and Bernadette with their husbands, Amandine is present with Rémy from the start of the adventure. She assists him on the estate while conciling family life with their 5 children.
