The domain is located in the Ardèche, the cellar is located in the commune of Sarras. I produce today two white wines, one from 100% Viognier and the second in small quantities from 100% Marsanne, a typical grape variety of our area. As for the reds, I currently only have Syrah with which I produce a St Joseph and a Vin de France.The rest of the vines are located on the plateau at an altitude of about 350m on shallow granite soils, which allows for slow ripening, not too high degrees, and good acidity in the white wines.

Our story

The storyI created the estate in 2017 in Arras sur Rhône in Ardèche, taking over less than one hectare of Saint Joseph, today the estate is 3.5 hectares. Since 2018 I have been planting new plots of land every year to produce red Saint Joseph or IGP red and white wines.the vineyard has been worked according to organic farming methods since the beginning, and I have just started the organic certification process at the beginning of 2021.I produce red wines from Syrah only, and for the white wines from Viognier.the soils are sown with plant cover, and the rows are weeded mechanically. Since 2020 the new plantations are made in agroforestry, associating vines and apple and pear trees in the same plot.
