The roots of the Hervé family can be traced back to 1607 when Jean-Marie Hervé, a sailor from Brittany serving the King of France, disembarked once and for all at the end of his career to settle in the parish of Saillans. In front of the estate, a menhir has even been erected to remind the origins of the family.
Jean-Noël & Dominique Hervé have been in charge of the estate since 1977 and are the ones who made Ch. Moulin Haut-Laroque famous around the world. Jean-Noël Hervé is even defined as the last samurai into the japanese manga “The drops of God”
Since 2012, Thomas Hervé has joined the team and now plans to fully take over the family business.
