I'm certainly not the most appropriate or best placed to tell all this, but I love doing it so much! Our first plot is at the foot of the chapel of Saint Geniès whose calade has just been restored, this is the origin of our name. We are located at the exit of the Hérault Gorges where the soil is limestone and the exposure is due south. And to think that our old vines should have been torn down... They have seen many tractors and resulting on packed ground but they have been spared that is the main thing. The soil life was dying but we tried to revive it by working with animal traction. We feed this life with local sheep manure. This sacrifice has reduced the previous yield by a factor of four. But for what quality! The harvest is always festive thanks to the precious and indispensable help of friends and family. We rent a cottage to welcome them and it is the occasion to celebrate the meeting!
"Once upon a time"... two couples of friends who, wanting to return to the land to revolt, to reveal themselves, to work, to laugh and to enjoy themselves, decided to buy a plot of vines and olive trees. You could have met us and nothing would have told you that our challenge is to pay tribute to the land, we are ordinary people. Our wish and all our efforts have been for You to be able to imagine and feel what unites us, tasting our products in good company.
One day, Ronan identifies plots of land for sale in his favourite region. Happiness! He finds one! Very beautiful, not too big or too small, that's all it takes to get started. He calls me and says:
"Hello Brice?! Dude, I got something to offer you..."
"Christilla, what do you think?"
"Is this a joke? Are you dreaming?"
and Christilla said yes: the gift was and the adventure began.
From then on, the great mess began... We started our agricultural activity alongside our work as employees, it is a challenge but it is worth it. It is exciting to observe the evolution of the vines, the power of nature, to act to straighten out their stage. Tasting wine is witnessing its evolution, reflecting on the path we would like it to follow so that it can become our wine.
It was an intense adventure alongside Benoît Braujou; we were also supported by the Clos des Augustins. What a fairy tale to tell the children!
We wanted to make a wine that is authentic, simple and good; young because it embodies an impulse of freshness, to be enjoyed during a meal with friends because it is our first motto; and that carries well the character of its land... Our wish is to return to the land, we want to give it back its value, we want to thank it with the testimony of our products.
