DOMAINE DU PÈRE CABOCHE

"In the old times, my family members, the Boisson, had two jobs at once: they were both wine-makers and black-smiths. The name of our estate comes from this second profession, because the nails used to fix the shoe under the horse’s foot are called, in our regional language, “caboche”. It was, at the time, the nickname used to call the Boisson family. Only my father, Teophile, fatherless at age 3, could not learn the duty of a    black-smith. On the other hand, his mother, who was in charge of the estate, raised him to love the vines and wine, and so he became a wine-maker as well, just like his ancestors. Still, he kept the nickname “caboche”. That is how the first bottles of the Domaine du Père Caboche appeared." Jean-Pierre Boisson
