They start with only 3 hectares of vines in Savennières and Rochefort-sur-Loire.
The trials of life
After 25 years of activity, 13 hectares of vines and undeniable success, Sylvie and Christian want to experience other adventures. After several months of reflection, they made the decision to put the vineyard up for sale. But history is turned upside down. Christian dies suddenly when he has just turned 51. Without Christian, Sylvie does not project herself into the future and their adventure project for two ended with him. Despite the pain, she decides to withdraw the vineyard from the sale and continue the operation.
