Jean-Jacques, this incredible winemaker, focused all of his talent on la Verrerie. In 1985, the first wines were made. In 1988, Château la Verrerie received AOC Côtes du Luberon status. In 1989, the prestigious Grand Deffand was made, a prestige cuvee in which Syrah rules supreme. This prestige cuvee won a gold medal during the first edition of the international Syrah du Monde competition to find the very best example of the grape. By producing top-flight wines, Jean-Jacques Coll raised la Verrerie through the ranks of the most prestigious wineries in the Luberon.
