The Cave du Vieux-Moulin is a family estate, now managed by the fourth generation. The vines are planted on terraces, separated by dry-stone walls, with full southern exposure and an unobstructed view of the Rhône plain. Romain and Vincent Papilloud are keen to practice environmentally friendly viticulture and like to work with as few mechanical tools as possible.

The spearhead of the Domaine is Amigne, a unique grape variety originating from Vétroz, where it is particularly well suited to its schist soil. The grape variety is vinified in five different ways, in order to diversify the tastes and colours. The two Papillouds have even gone so far as to make orange Amigne, a winemaking technique they borrowed from Georgia. The bottle bears the original label of the Lausanne architect who gave his Vieux Moulin sign to the first Papilloud family winemakers.
