Both hailing from the Bordeaux region and Corrèze, Aude Duval and Sylvain Ohayon’s paths crossed on Argentinian viticultural lands at the foot of the Andes Cordillera where they both had traveled to enrich their knowledge of wine.

Located in Port-Sainte-Foy-et-Ponchapt, Dordogne in South-West France, between the Loire Valley and Pyrenees mountains, 80 kilometers east of the town of Bourdeaux, the vineyard counts 8 hectares in one piece area on a clay-limestone soil: 1.70 ha of Sémillon + 6.20 ha of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon vines averaging 35 years of age. The planting density is 5000 vines per hectare.

The winery has been practicing biodynamic and organic farming since 2012. Before settling on the vineyard, Sylvain was a winemaker in the Médoc and Aude worked in a wine store close to Saint Emilion.
