Our story with Guillaume and Maxime

It was Géraldine who met Maxime and Guillaume at Vinexpo Paris in 2019. Géraldine first noticed the influx of people at the booth of these two nice winegrowers, and wanted to get out of the game. The game was easy! From the first conversations, the conversation was organic, fluid and the philosophies came together; that was all it took to start a relationship based on a passion for natural wines and friendly relations!

A little anecdote to share with friends

The cultivation of the vine dates back to the Allobroges, according to some writings. In the Middle Ages, the monks extended the vineyard to the steep slopes of the Alps and to the fertile plains, until the 19th century.

The modernization of cultivation and winemaking methods and the control of yields caused a qualitative leap, a boom accentuated by the development of winter tourism.

From Lake Geneva to the south of Chambéry, the Savoyard vineyard occupies the first slopes of the Alps, between 300 and 600 m. Between lakes, mountain pastures, chalets and orchards, the vines form a complex mosaic of microclimates and terroirs with more or less accentuated mountain characteristics.

A good glue for you
