Company info

If we have the taste for contacts and meetings, we are also winemakers engaged in a viticulture that makes sense, Organic and Bio-dynamically. We settled in 2006 after a long stay in Asia. A magical place that seduced us, by its environment (the Dordogne), the architecture (the Chapel) and the quality of the terroir (for the quality of the wines).
