The 2.5 hectares of south to south-east facing vineyard sit on granite, biotite terraces in the heart of the Condrieu appellation. The old vines are aged between 50 and 70 years. The vines are planted at density of 8,000 to 10,000 vines per hectare and yield just 25 hectolitres per hectare. Planted on 110 Richter rootstocks, they are trained according to the simple Guyot method and due to the steep nature of the terraced vineyard, the use of machines is impossible; therefore the vineyard is maintained manually and without the use of weed killers or insecticides. 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 Côte Rôtie wines. In 2019, Domaine Georges Vernay was awarded the prestigious 3 stars by 'La Revue du Vin de France'.
