FOR THE ORGANIC VIGNERONS
AT GRANGE DE BOUYS
After a first life spent in the finance world and all around the globe with our four children, we decide in 2009 to get closer to nature and to work more in symbiosis with our environment.
Born in Toulon, Florence wanted to go back to the Southern sun and to devote herself more to outdoor activities. Stephane, who has his roots around Angers where part of his family belong to the wine world since 1895, wanted to reconnect with nature.
In 2010, we fell completely in love with the ancient wine domain Grange de Bouys, located in Roujan, 10 km away from Pezenas in the Herault department. The cellar was still there with its enormous tanks as witnesses of its original purpose, but the vines had been sold in the eighties. As early as 2012, we started to slowly acquire the plots of garigue and vines located around our property, increasing the domain size from 30 to 100 acres, unsegmented, with 15 acres of vines surrounded by wood, garigues and olive trees.
To meet the new role as a winemaker, Stéphane has enrolled in a year-long course for professionals in Beaune, Burgundy to learn how to make quality wines and to improve his skills in taking care of the vineyard. As early as 2015, we implement a work organization that is in phase with the natural rythm of the seasons and the earth, favoring organic and biodynamic practices and harvesting 100% manually.
Though we both take part in the pruning and the caring of the vines, as well as in the promotion of our wines, Stephane is the one making the wine and the one in charge of managing the wine farm.
Florence, on the other side, is in charge of renovating the dry stone walls that give structure to our hillsides, of cultivating the vegetable garden, of steering their biodiversity actions, of managing the wwoofers and the website. We both take care of our olive grove.
