The new generation

Arnaud (on the left) was mad on sports (he was a keen athlete and talented volley ball player) and it looked as though he was going to become a sports teacher.

Nicolas studied agronomy in Toulouse, travelled overseas to gain work experience to places as diverse as Peru, New Zealand, South Africa, Chile and California.


In 2003, Nicolas started overseeing the grape harvest at Viranel, and two years later, he moved in and made it his home. Arnaud joined him in 2009, handling the sales and marketing side of the equation, and the rest is history.

"Today, working together, we’re writing a new chapter in the story of Viranel. We like to think that by combining our skills, energy and enthusiasm with the heritage that’s been handed down to us, we can bring something new to the table."
