The owners get advice from professionals like Pierre Galet and André Crespy, professors at the University of Montpellier, and decide to pull up the old vineyard and plant prestigious French varieties for the production of quality wines.
 
After this stage, six Swiss wine lovers and friends, including Franz J. Wermuth (Les Grands Vins Wermuth), Frank Ebinger (Casa del Vino Ebinger) and Silvio Denz (Château Faugères, Château Rocheyron, Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey, Montepeloso) acquire this renowned viticultural environment in 1998 and hire, as wine consultant, the oenologist Peter Sisseck, who produces in Ribera del Duero great wines such as Pingus, Hacienda Monasterio, etc.
 
At this stage a new project towards an increased production of quality wines is undertaken, with the construction of a new winery designed by architect Jesús Manzanares and an increased plantation area by retrieving old terraces in the higher parts of the property. 
 
Currently, the technical director Miguel Coronado, advised by oenologist Peter Sisseck, continues working to make the most of the particular terroir of Clos d’ Agon, and to thereby further develop great wines that are characterized by a marked style and quality.
 
Both White and Red Clos d’Agon have received high ratings and won praise from various international journalists such as Robert Parker, Stephen Tanzer, José Peñín and Mario Scheuermann. In addition, the 2006 White Clos d’Agon was named best white wine from Spain by the Wine Advocate.
