A former IT consultant, in 2002 Thierry decided on a life change; to work with the land. His family had previously been farmers in the Nimes area, but he had one problem... he didn’t know how to farm.
He chose the village of Souvignargues and started in 2004 with five hectares of old vines.
Until the 1980s, Aramon was 50% of Languedoc vineyards, now only 0.3%. Grapes that are suited to the heat of the Languedoc, ripening with lower alcohol and higher acid than you would expect. Pale in colour, bright in fruit with a deceptively strong tannic structure
