The name "Desvignes", in earlier times written "des Vignes" , means "from the vines". Nicolas Desvignes was a counsellor to the King, a salt tax inspector in the macon region and a deputy major. The Pasquier des Vignes family has been the owner of the Domaine du Marquisat since 1420. In 1823, Cesar Desvignes, the "Man with the hat", took an oath with his brothers, promising that the name Desvignes would remain forever attached to the Domaine du Marquisat. In memory of this pact, the House of Pasquier des Vignes through the selection, vinification and storage of its wines, has perpetuated the ancestral know-how on which its reputation is built.
