We are the direct heirs of the Beaujolais tradition, we repeat every day the actions transmitted by our ancestors, and we do everything possible to ensure the longevity of our vineyard. We even have century-old vines! We also and above all pay great attention to the quality of our production, because a quality wine can only be made with quality grapes... Concerned about the environment around us, it was in 2004 that we committed ourselves to a sustainable agricultural approach that is Terra-Vitis.
I took over the family estate following my father in 2007 who took it over from his parents in 1972. The buildings are about 400 years old. It is not clear when the estate was created as there are generations that have replaced each other. We are all animated over the generations that follow one another by the same passion: that of producing authentic wines from artisan winegrowers.
In a winegrower's wine there is always the "claw" of the person who makes it. Each producer brought his or her own personal touch. My father started the process to become Terra Vitis. This approach is really in line with our philosophy, which is why we felt it was important not to miss it.
Since I was a child I wanted to be a winegrower, as soon as I had a free moment I would join my father in the cellar or in the vineyards. And this, before I could even walk, I would go down to the cellar on my buttocks!
The winegrower's profession often leads to reflection. The long, quiet days allow me to think about how I can improve my production even more, but at the same time, the job teaches us humility.
