The wines are recommended by Andreas Larsson, the world's best sommelier! Just outside Bordeaux is Château de Malherbes. Since 2014, the vines are meticulously worked in a modern way, while respecting traditions. With a very precise process from the arrival of the grapes in the cellar to the bottling, quality wines are produced. Andreas Larsson, who has fallen in love with the estate's wines, praises the work: "Wines that outperform their peers in the Cadillac Côtes de Bordeaux AOC".
Vieux Château labatut
A family property of 4 hectares since 1964, it was in 2018 that Frédéric took over the reins of the Château. He uses his professional experience to the benefit of his estate: trained in the greatest Châteaux of Pomerol, he combines the methods of the past with the techniques of today. His terroir, worked with respect for the environment, enables him to produce supple wines with fruity notes.
Château de Chelivette
Jacques is a winegrower at Château de Chelivette and produces Bordeaux Supérieur, Côte de Bordeaux, Bordeaux rosé and Bordeaux Clairet wines. At the estate, he has made it a point of honour to cultivate his wines biodynamically. A successful bet for this Bordeaux estate, as only ten or so estates in the region practice this type of viticulture.
Château Font Barrièle
Since 1857, the Gourjon family has maintained a close relationship with the land, where the love of the land and the wine is passed on from generation to generation. It is today Christian who continues this work with passion and rigour, while leading an approach not only of protection of the local fauna and flora, but especially in a dynamics of repopulation of threatened species: respect of the environment, "Viti foresterie"... His greatest satisfaction: to give his customers pleasure when they taste his wines!
Domaine Sauvète has been a family estate for five generations, and is now taken over by Mathilde, the first female winemaker in the family! "20 years of organic work is our pride! With an organic certification for more than 20 years, the estate also practices more and more biodynamic methods in order to let the terroir express itself through the grapes and the wines.
Located in Connaux in the Gard Rhodanien region between Avignon and Nîmes, the Maison Gervasoni is above all a family story. The dynasty has not stopped evolving and the passion for wine has been passed on for 5 generations now. With 200 hectares, the vineyards represent the largest part of the property where many grape varieties are produced such as: Grenache, Marselan, Merlot, Viognier, Syrah, Clairette, Cabernet, Sauvignon and Chardonnay.
Domaine des Ruaults
Located on exceptional terroirs where Chenin and Cabernet Franc blend perfectly, the estate was taken over in 2016 by the Faivre family. Since this takeover, the estate has been developing its own wines with the aim of producing terroir wines: the estate was awarded the HVE (High Environmental Value) label in 2020.
In 2007, Claudine, who has always been passionate about wine, decided to settle in the southern Rhône Valley, in Montfrin. There she produces wines mainly from the Côtes du Rhône Villages and IGP Coteaux Pont du Gard appellations. These are racy, pure and elegant wines that reflect the typicality of the terroir, as well as being made according to the Vegan specifications. "I have at heart to offer pleasant wines in the respect of the nature and the Men".
Domaine de Grimardy
For Gaël and Sophie Valet, wine is the result of a long annual cycle of the vine. Using organic farming methods, they accompany the plant and then the yeasts in respect of their biological cycles. Surrounded by woods, meadows and coppices, small valleys and forests, typical landscapes of the Purple and Green Périgords, the estate offers harmonious and fruity wines that will amaze you.
Champagne Bonvalet est né du rêve fou de Guillaume de créer sa Maison de champagne en partant de rien. La création de sa première cuvée a été faite en 2012, et depuis, le domaine se développe et de nouvelles cuvées voient le jour. Il travaille main dans la main avec son épouse et leurs équipes, à la recherche de la meilleure qualité et expression du terroir. Champagne Bonvalet et l’aventure que Guillaume incarne invitent à déconstruire les idées préconçues, à remettre les choses en perspective, à s’interroger sur ce qui fait réellement sens, pour faire éclore des idées nouvelles !
Elie is an experienced and passionate winemaker and cellar master. He has been managing vineyards and making wines for 25 years now. His wines are easy to digest, respect and express the terroirs and the ageing in barrels supports them without altering them. Elie and Muriel Corporandy's dream: to create a sober and expressive vineyard, in continuity with their vision of things, to produce affordable wines to share with friends.
Located in the commune of Saint Amour Bellevue, in the south of Burgundy, the Domaine is south facing where the vines benefit from a beautiful diversity of terroir.

Today, they offer three wines made according to the traditional Beaujolais method, favouring the expression of the diversity of the terroir.
