In 1880:
Pierre Hamelin, an inhabitant of Beines, grew 3 hectares of vines, alongside other land and animals. He used a mule to work his vines.At that time, the wine was held in barrels holding 132 litres, giving rise to their name of ‘feuillette’, or little cask.. All these wines were sold in their containers.
They were transported by river, using barges or rafts.

In 1911:
Georges Hamelin settled in Lignorelles. The property was extended to include 4 hectares of vines, which he worked by horse.
The wine sold in ‘feuillettes’ was transported by railway.
