Seventh-generation winemaker brothers, Stéphane and Vincent started working in their family vineyards in 1988, then conversion to organic in 2009, producing their first certified vintage in 2013.
Their soil is volcanic and consists of two terroirs; the first has a top soil of sand, gravel and clay with a subsoil soil of gabbro. The second; a topsoil quartz with a subsoil of granite.
The climate is Oceanic, with a soft and humid winter and the wind coming from the west off of the Atlantic.
The name of this wine, “Le Pas Rouge”, is the name of the plot “Clos du Pas” and the color of the wine. In French, the name is a contradiction because pas rouge means "not red".
