Our vineyard is located in Gaillac in the middle of the Southwestern vineyard. We cultivate 15 hectares of vines: 8 of them are vinified on the property and the rest is sent to a cooperative cellar. our terroir is mainly composed of clay and limestone hillsides and a few plots of gravel. Our vineyard is classified as Premières Côtes de Gaillac. The vineyard is planted with a variety of grape varieties, apart from the classic ones such as Sauvignon, Muscadelle, Syrah, Merlot and Gamay, we cultivate the emblematic Gaillac grape varieties 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-based preparations as well as essential oils. In winemaking we reduce the doses of sulphites. We currently produce two vintages without added sulphites and not detected in the analyses.
For 25 years, I worked as an engineer in the water sector and my missions have led me to travel all over the world with my family. With my wife, Anne and my children, we lived in Brazil and in different African countries. My job and my travels have led me to work with winegrowers from the Hérault region as well as others further afield in Argentina and South Africa... This project to switch from water to wine was born from my passion for wine, a need for roots and contact with the land and my independent character! This project, which was a little surprising for my family and friends at the beginning, was however matured for a long time before becoming a reality 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!
