With the arrival of his second daughter Sylvie, our father Francis was both delighted and torn by conflicting feelings: on the one hand he had a beautiful, healthy baby … on the other, yet another girl.
Who was going to take over the vineyard he had inherited and so successfully built up?
This fear gradually subsided as we grew up and proved ourselves to be fearless, interested, passionate, hardworking, sporty, a bit tomboyish … all qualities that would one day serve us well.
As we developed, along with the wine estate, we got involved in everyday activities, observed the goings on in the vineyard and winery and often experienced the pleasure of tasting good wine.
Our father taught us the technical side, the profession as they say, as well as a love for it.
From our mother we learned what it was like to give and to receive. From the two of them we learned the pleasure of all good things.
Basically, we were born winemakers but became epicureans. The years passed, filled with encounters, studies, travel and shared experiences.
Eventually we chose to extract the best of these moments and make them a way of life … and to put all our experiences to good use by offering wines that reflect what we preach every day: conviviality.
