About the Winery:
The adventure began in 1919, when, on their return from the war, Raoul Couston and his father decided to turn the family broom making workshop into a winemaking cellar. Today the torch is taken over by Lionel and Damien, the 5th generation..
All the parcels are worked according to the rules of organic farming for the past 30 years. Their aim is to preserve the authenticity and singularity of this terroir in order to express its full potential. Soil life and biodiversity is promoted. The vine lives in harmony with birds, bees and other insects.
The vineyards are mainly on high altitude.
