Only 500 meters from Beauval Zoo, the noise of the animals does not prevent the Biet family from practicing their profession with passion and this, for 4 generations. On Jean-Marc's 20 ha estate, the traditional and sustainable Terra Vitis methods used bear fruit, as he has been awarded many times. Today he passes the torch to his daughter, Julie, and together they continue to write the history of the estate and to offer unique vintages under the Touraine appellation.
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 River, the winemaker produces in the Touraine appellation. At the estate, located not even 500 meters from the 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 since they are 60 years old!
Jean-Marc and Julie are attached to the respect of the environment in which they work: no chemical products 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 four generations. The result? The estate is certified Terra Vitis and High Environmental Value level 3.
"The history of the Domaine begins in the 30's, with a family of farmers and winemakers, originally from Berry, who settled here in Seigy. We are fortunate to have inherited an agricultural and viticultural 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 the private clientele and the export on some markets. Our way of working in the vineyard is more and more close to our environment. With the tastings done in the cellar, you can now stay in our guest house, in the heart of the Domaine. You will be in the family house, which has seen the birth of generations of winegrowers. The house has been completely renovated by my mother, Lydia.
Today, the winemaker is me: Julie! I continue the adventure with my father. One day I said to myself "why not me?", so after several experiences in the wine business, in France and abroad, I came back to the Domaine as the winemaker! With my father, we are a team. We have learned to work together and we share our know-how."
"I fell into the pot when I was little! I've always loved wine, but not just that: with my parents, I loved going to markets, fairs where we met our customers and had our wines tasted. The smell of freshly pressed juice at harvest time, the sound of the tractor on our little road (you can recognize it between 1000!) and the sound of the cork when you open a bottle! My passion is there, in all these small details which make that yes, I love my work!
My favorite wine? The one we share with family and friends, the one that tastes good, is juicy and calls to us."
