Pierre and Julie met in Mexico whilst they were backpacking around the world. This long journey guided them inexorably towards their vineyard in Vic-Mireval, at the foot of which, in 1854, Gustave Courbet painted "La Rencontre".
Specialised in Muscat à Petits Grains Blanc, our vignes overlook the village of Mireval and the Mediterranean Sea and are situated in a protected zone of natural interest, midway between Sète and Montpellier.
In our cellar, implanted at Vic-La-Gardiole, we work on a crescendo of maturity of our grapes and use various methods of winemaking, so that we can reveal the "painters palette" of this aromatic variety and create a range of modern, surprising wines.
Discover the effect of nature's alchemy, depending on the season and the year and the intervention of the winemaker to capture the best of her fruits.
We propose a tasting and sale at the salon as well as the possibility of delivering our wines directly to you.
Each of our labels tells a story. The voyage of discovery around the world, the destiny that brought Pierre and Julie towards their future together and their vineyard. A parallel with Gustave Courbet, who travelled with his artist's tools on his back and painted "La rencontre" in the place where our vineyard is found today. The name of each cuvée is not random and corresponds to the face of the world chosen. So, lets tell the story.
The only round label - destination unknown for the "esprits libres". You need an open mind for the " rencontre" - in our case, in the Americas. Julie is the "philosophe" and Pierre the "poète" - south and north poles that create the balance. "l'hédoniste", adores life's pleasures - and sharing them - our favourite destination - Asia. But it is in Europe that we created our domaine and we love the "éclat" of excitement as we grow. sagesse, we wait patiently for the botyritis to yield its treasure and of course, only the "pacific" ocean will do.
