A winemaker from the Loire Valley with roots as deep as his vines
- Antoine grew up in the heart of the Loire Valley surrounded by vineyards, so it's no surprise he grew up to be a winemaker.
- His old world Loire Valley roots were allowed to flourish whilst winemaking in the new world vineyards of Argentina and South Africa.
- With the influence and valuable second hand knowledge of winemakers from across the globe at his fingertips, Antoine was ready to take on a vineyard of his own upon his return to the Loire Valley
I grew up in the hear of Loire Valley surrounding by vineyards so since my childhood I saw, smell and felt grapes and wines it was my destiny ! and I will never change as this is a passion not a job!
Studied winemaking in Beaune and wine business between Montpellier & Bordeaux. Spent 10 years overseas to make wines (Argentina, South Africa) and worked for wine importers in the USA, I visited wineries while travelling to see what earth has to offer and meet great wine mates !
