The history of the Dupont Family in the Pays d'Auge region in Normandy goes back for more than 3 centuries. The oldest known archives testify to the birth of Pierre Dupont in 1703. In 1887, Jules Dupont arrived as tenant farmer at La Vigannerie, the old name of the present estate. In parallel with his cattle raising activity, he produced cider and calvados. Thanks to his sales of these, he was able to buy La Vigannerie in 1916. His son, Louis Dupont, succeeded him in 1934. He continued his father's business of cattle raising. He also produced calvados which he sold in bulk to local merchants. When he died in 1974, his wife Colette, with the support of the family courageously assumed control. It was in 1980 that Etienne Dupont took up the reins of the family estate, thus succeeding his father, Louis. He extended the estate, concentrating its activities around cider and calvados production. The old orchards were redeveloped and ten further hectares (24 acres) of low growing apple trees were planted. He went to Cognac to immerse himself in the best techniques of double distillation. Etienne Dupont is behind the creation of the appellation contrôlée A.O.C. Pays d'Auge. In 2002, his son Jérôme Dupont joined the family estate of which he became the director, in partnership with his sister Anne-Pamy Dupont. The modernisation of the state continues always driven by this insistence on quality and this inventiveness, which characterises the Domaine Dupont.
The Louis Dupont Family estate consists of 30 hectares (74 acres) of orchards in Normandy, in the heart of the Pays d'Auge region.
The estate produces ciders, pommeau and calvados.
