With humility and conviction, she did her weapons for 17 years before flying on her own wings. Since 2017, she manages her estate from A to Z. Exploitation, vinification, sales; an iron hand in a velvet glove. She has chosen to practise a reasoned viticulture, respectful of the land and the typicities of the terroir.
