Our vineyard is located in Gaillac in the middle of the South-West vineyard. We cultivate 15 hectares of vines there: 8 of them are vinified on the property and the rest are sent to the cooperative cellar. Our terroir is mainly composed of clay-limestone hillsides and a few plots of gravel. Our vineyard is classified as Premières Côtes de Gaillac. The vineyard's grape varieties are varied, apart from the classic varieties such as Sauvignon, Muscadelle, Syrah, Merlot and Gamay, we grow the emblematic varieties of Gaillac such as Mauzac and Len de l'el in white, Braucol and Duras in red. 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 as well as essential oils. In winemaking we reduce the use of sulphites. For the moment we produce two cuvées without added sulphites that are not detected by analysis.
For 25 years, I worked as an engineer in the water sector and my missions have taken me to the four corners of the globe with my family. With my wife, Anne and my children, we have lived in Brazil and in different African countries. My job and my travels have brought me into contact with winegrowers in the Hérault region, but also with others further afield in Argentina and South Africa. This project to move from water to wine was born out of my passion for wine, a need to put down roots and contact with the land and my independent character! This project, which was a little surprising for those around me at first, was however matured over a long period of time before taking shape in the magnificent Gaillac vineyard.
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!
