Dominique and his father François established F&D Giroud wines in 1995. François tends the vines and Dominique specializes in oenology and sales. In 2007, fifteen years after setting up a small wine business in the village of Chamoson, Dominique Giroud now manages a company that employs thirty people and cultivates over 50 hectares of vineyards.

Throughout this epic journey, Dominique Giroud has been careful to maintain the focus on quality. An exceptional crop of medals and awards from international wine competitions are proof that the winery's characteristic standards of excellence have never faltered. In 2004, Dominique Giroud received a special award at Vinitaly which recognized Giroud Wines as the best Swiss winery for the consistent quality of its wines. Giroud Wine's export activity exemplifies its typical dynamism. Giroud Wines are shipped to London, Stockholm, Singapore, Holland, the Czech Republic, Germany, Belgium, Iceland, Ireland and even Canada.
