The WinemakerEmile Heredia founded his Domaine in 1999 and has been organically farming form the beginning and even plows by horse.

The appellation is 340 acres. Grapes grown here: cabernet franc , pinot poir , gamay , pineau d'Aunis , chenin blanc and chardonnay. AOC 2001
We love wines that intrigue.When we sat down with the importer to taste this wine-my remark, we wow…and I said to him referencing the half bottle we were tasting from; I could just drink the rest of that right now. Totally natural, clean and elegantly integrated. One of my wines of the year. We bought the last 17 bottles in California.
