Julie and Jean-Marc's family estate covers about 36 hectares in Seigy, in the Loire Valley. 40 kilometers from Blois and its castles, on the left bank of the Cher, the winemaker produces in the Touraine appellation. At the estate, located not even 500 metres from Beauval zoo, don't be surprised to hear roars and other animals!
The vines of Domaine Biet are planted on hillsides with clay and limestone soil. They are rather old for the average in the region as they are 60 years old.
Jean-Marc and Julie are committed to respecting the environment in which they work: no chemicals in the vineyard and cultivation of the soil between the rows. Without being at the top of technology, they use the new machines while practicing the gestures learned from their elders, and this for 4 generations. The result? The estate has been awarded the Terra Vitis and High Environmental Value level 3 labels.
The history of the estate began in the 1930s, with a family of farmers and winegrowers from Berry, who settled here in Seigy. We are fortunate to have inherited agricultural and wine-growing know-how, which is not the case for all winegrowers.
In the 1980s, my father Jean-Marc, and my mother Lydia, took over the reins and continued to develop private customers and exports in a few markets. Our way of working in the vineyards is increasingly close to our environment. With tastings in the cellar, you can now stay in our guest house, in the heart of the estate. You will be in the family home, where these generations of winegrowers were born. The house has been completely renovated by Lydia.
The winegrower today is Julie, who is continuing the adventure with her father. One day we think: why not me? So after several experiences in the wine trade, in France and abroad, the winegrower returns to the estate.
Basically, Julie falls in when she's little. She has always loved wine, but not only that. She has always loved the markets where we meet our customers, the fairs, where we taste our wines, the smell of freshly squeezed juices at harvest, the sound of the tractor on our little road, we can recognize it between 100 ! And the sound of the cork when you open a bottle...
Her passion is there: in all these small details that make that yes, the winegrower loves her work! His favorite wine? It is the one she shares with her family and friends, the one with taste, the one who is juicy, the one who challenges us, it can be white, red, pink and even bubbly!
With his father, they work as a team. They have learned to work together and share their know-how. The meeting that marked Julie? It is the meeting with the local winegrowers, who, like his father, share their experience and simply teach you.
