Our vineyard is located in Gaillac in the middle of the Southwestern vineyard. We cultivate 11 hectares of vines there: 5 of them are vinified on the property and the rest is sent for vinification to the cooperative cellar in Rabastens.

Our terroir is mainly composed of clayey-limestone slopes and some gravelly trails. Our vineyard is classified as Premières Côtes de Gaillac. They are exposed South-South-East. The vineyard's grape varieties are complex and include varieties that are not widely cultivated in France: Sauvignon Blanc, Muscadelle, Mauzac, Merlot, Len de l'el, Braucol, or Duras, to name but a few.

We attach great importance to the functioning and preservation of our soils and strive to reduce the use of copper by using nettle and horsetail preparations and essential oils. In winemaking we reduce the doses of sulphites. We currently produce two vintages without added sulphites and not detected in the analyses.

Our story

For 20 years, I was a hydraulic engineer, after having completed the corresponding training. My missions around the water sector have led me to live all over the world with my family. With my wife, Anne and my children, we lived in Brazil and in different African countries.

This project to switch from water to wine seemed a little crazy to everyone around me, but it was more than 10 years old. The years passed and it finally sprouted from the contact with the winegrowers of the Hérault. I was able to meet these winegrowers during my previous career and discovered the vineyards of Argentina and South Africa.

Today, we cultivate our 11 hectares of vines in the South-West of France together and on the strength of our past.

Other little stories

For lack of infrastructure, the first two years of cultivation of our vineyard, we had to send the entire harvest to the cooperative cellars of Rabastens. At the beginning of 2011, we are building and producing 9 vintages!
