Discover : Maxime Pinard vineyard

A domain

unique & typical

"It is a domain where living rhymes with your desires for dreams and discoveries. Soothing for the soul, comforting for the body, it evokes plenitude and brightens your stay." This is how the Maxime Pinard Group describes its estate. A haven of peace where time slows down to the rhythm of the ocean's languor to better reveal its secrets.

The secret of an estate kept from father to son by 4 generations of winemakers. And it is in the heart of this postcard of more than 100 hectares of grape varieties and dʼappellations dʼorigine contrôlée that the famous Maxime Pinard vintages are produced.

Since 1889, the whole family has been using its know-how in the vineyard. The island of Oleron is endowed with a charm and a voluptuousness which are found in the sensitive and delicate aromas of its cognac and its incomparable range of regional products.

Enjoy the unforgettable experience of a stay at the end of the world, the discovery of an estate where the sea gives the land the colour of its vine. Thanks to the age-old experience of the Maxime Pinard Group in winegrowing, you will discover not only a know-how but also an "art of living".

A vineyard

a story

The Maxime Pinard vineyard is above all a family story, with 4 generations of winegrowers who have passed on their winegrowing and Oleronian know-how.


Georges Pinard, the great-grandfather from the island of Oléron, started cultivating the first hectare of vineyard, the beginning of a beautiful story.


Birth of Jean-Louis Pinard, the grandfather. He would later take over his father's vineyard and expand it to 5 hectares.


Jean-François Pinard, the father and third generation, is born. He marries Liliane with whom he expands the vineyard to 40 hectares.


Maxime Pinard was born and took over his father's vineyard at the age of 22, after studying oenology and viticulture while still in business school in 1997.


Maxime married Isabelle, with whom he had two daughters, Aurore and Caroline. They develop the bottling at the estate and direct sales.


In 2011, part of the estate is being rehabilitated into reception room. Then the family diversified its offer on the island of Oléron by buying theHotel Restaurant La Chaudrée in 2012 and theHotel Logis de la Plage in 2018.
