Guillaume family has been grafting vines in Charcenne, France, for more than a century. Knowledge and experience has been passed on from one generation to the next as the company developed and became recognized in the worldwide grapevine industry.

Grafting in Charcenne, France, in 1895

The origin of the French nursery goes back to a time when the Franche-Comté region had to rebuild its vineyard following the phylloxera crisis. In 1895, Albert Guillaume started grafting vines and set up a nursery selling planting material in several wine-producing regions of France. At the end of the development of hybrids in 1954, his son Henri Guillaume took other and took an active part in the reconstruction of the Bourgogne and Champagne Vineyards. From 1983 up to until the present time, Henri's son Pierre-Marie has continued to expand and develop the company, focusing on research and genetic selection and giving it an international scale.

After expanding to Chile in 1998, the company set up a nursery in the United States in 2008, Guillaume Grapevine Nursery, so as to provide North American winegrowers with top-quality material and share the knowledge and experience acquired in Europe. Guillaume Grapevine Nursery is located in Knights Landing, California, a close proximity to Sacramento. This area, with no surrounding vineyards while remaining close to the main Californian winegrowing regions, makes the perfect environment to produce and grow grapevines with the highest sanitary standards.
