The adventure all began with Yann’s parents. They decided to settle in Rhone Valley, on a four-hectare site, at the beginning of the 70s. In 1996, Yann restructured the vines and began to work on the soil. After being victim of poisoning by an insecticide he was using to treat the vines, he began seeking alternative solutions, engaging with organic agriculture at the dawn of the year 2000. The estate was certified in 2007. Today, located at the heart of Crozes-Hermitage appellation, the estate extends to 20 hectares, with 1.2 hectares on the mythical Hermitage hillside.
