Today, with 800ha and growing, the Grassa family has the largest independent vineyard holding in France, famous for its pioneering Vins de Pays des Côtes de Gascogne, but also for its Armagnac brandies, especially from the Folle Blanche grape. Starting with Colombard, the domaine now also has a range of vines including the Gros and Petit Manseng, Sauvignon and Chardonnay. The blend of the two last-named is outstanding.
