not just a family, a history

Château de Blaceret Roy : Armand, Cyril, Gérard et Thierry CANARD... Armand, Cyril, Gérard et Thierry  
At the beginning of 17th century Jean Canard and his 4 boys were bargees owning 40 wine transport barges. This activity died out at the beginning of 20th century with the growth of rail transport.   But they had already started their vinegrowing and winemaking activity. From 17th century, in around 1684, they worked vines on the communes of Saint-Étienne-des-Oullières, Quincié-en-Beaujolais and Saint-Étienne-la-Varenne.   Thierry CANARD, to owner today, is the 11th generation of the family working on the estate. He has been working at the Château since 1978 and his son, Cyril CANARD is the 12th generation.   Armand CANARD, Thierry’s father, started working on the estate in 1957 and still takes part in tending the vines and working in the cellar.   Gérard CANARD, Armand’s brother, is an ambassador for our region and has been working tirelessly to promote Beaujolais wines in France and throughout the world since 1960.   History   In 1996 we created two brands for our Château de Blaceret Roy wines :   Château de Blaceret Roy : Espace Paradis...“Domaine du Père Chavel”, Philippe CHAVEL was my great-great grandfather. He was the château winemaker from 1895 to 1925 and we wanted to pay him tribute through this brand name.   Château de Blaceret Roy : Espace Paradis...“Terroirs et Tradition, la passion du vigneron”, is an exclusive brand name for the Château wines as well as for those that we carefully select from the best slopes.

Château de Blaceret Roy : Espace Paradis...Wine Tradition

The great diversity of the Terroirs on the Château de Blaceret Roy estate allows us to produce a full range of wines with different personalities using two grape varieties, Gamay and Chardonnay. Each year confers its own originality and characteristics on the wine, this, combined with our know-how has made the reputation of our Château’s wines which are vinified using grapes from century-old vines. They are all made and bottled by Thierry Canard in the Château cellars.
