In January 2016, the Tesseron family became the owners of Villa Sorriso (Villa of Smiles), the former property of the actor Robin Williams.The actor christened the vineyard with the middle names of his children “PYM” and “RAE”. Due to this touching story and in respect to the previous owners, the Tesserons have chosen to continue this name for the domain’s wine. Pym-Rae is the realization of a dream: a family investment in another exceptional terroir where Cabernets are also the major grape variety, in a country which has taught and given so much.
