M. Bielle-Navarre settled in the Bordeaux region in the 1900s and began to produce wine shortly thereafter. He went on sales trips to Normandy in order to sell his wine and created a nucleus of loyal customers who welcomed him year after year.
His son-in-law perpetuated the system of direct sales to private customers and introduced them to Château La Carelle, increasing his customer base thanks to his many contacts and their friends. At the time, orders were placed orally and customers were considered part of the family. He inspired a great deal of confidence and friendship wherever he went.
