The three hectares of vineyard is located in the parish of Semons in the plot 'Coteau de Bassenon'; and in the parish of Ampuis, in the plots of 'Lancement' and 'Tupin'. The vineyards are situated on south facing granite terraces. Due to the steep slopes in the vineyards, the 30 year old vines are maintained manually, without the use of weed killers and all treatments use organic products. Planted on 3309 rootstocks, the vines are trained according to Cordon and simple Guyot training systems and are planted at a density of 8,000 vines per hectare. Yields are low at 35 hectolitres per hectare. The vineyard is certified organic.

Georges Vernay is known as the "King of Condrieu" and was responsible for the growth and worldwide recognition of this small appellation during the 1950s. His estate covers 22 hectares of vineyards, six of which are in the Côte Rôtie appellation. The steep and uneven vineyards make mechanical labour impossible. The vines are manually cultivated without the use of residual herbicide or insecticide. Georges' daughter, Christine, returned to her roots with Paul Anselem, her Parisian husband, and has looked after the winemaking since 1997, gaining worldwide recognition for her Cote Rotie wines. In 2019, Domaine Georges Vernay was awarded the prestigious 3 stars by 'La Revue du Vin de France'.
