  • Description


    Hey everyone!

    (from late feb for 2 weeks)

    Originally from Belgium, after a few years of travel going through different wine region and farms, i decided to put my luggage down in the south west of France and took over a beautifull vineyard in the Bordeaux countryside. 9ha grown organicaly since 1993, amazing terroir ! We're know moving torwards a sixth vintage. Big challenge ! We'll be trying as much as we can to put biodynamy in practice and we're also bringing our horse in the vine. Always working in group i love enthusiastic, curious people to share work, experience and good wines !

    Hope to cross your way in the vine soon !

    It's time to pick some grappes !!! From the 15th of september until the 2nd of october
