Born in Anjou, Vincent left the Loire and attended Oenology School in Beaujolais in the early 1990s. After graduating he stayed in the region and apprenticed in Brouilly from winemaker Patrick Coton. Around this time he met Marcel Lapierre and several other winemakers who were beginning to attract attention to their non-interventionist style of winemaking. Vincent was moved by their wines and quickly decided that this was the path for him.

In 2002 he moved with his wife and their 2 daughters to the village of Orcet in Auvergne. They purchased 4.5 ha of organic vines and planted an additional 6 ha. Vincent had learned that the region had one of the largest concentrations of pre-phylloxera vines in France and was eager to for an opportunity to work with such rare vines.
