Longing for new challenges, Claire and Gonzague embarked on a common adventure in 2012, far from their lands of the Médoc and their Classified Growths, creating their own vineyard as well as wines in their unique style. They wanted to embrace the freedom to cross the Atlantic Ocean and to write a new chapter in their story
together. Looking for the exceptional terroir, they chose to emigrate to California for three years with their
children. There, they settled on a ten-hectare vineyard nestled in the heart of Sonoma, in Chalk Hill, located at the intersection of the greatest Californian appellations: Russian River, Knight’s Valley and Alexander Valley.
The perfect environment for the Bordeaux grape varieties, where they could flourish in the sunny Californian micro
climate.They had to build everything: there were no winemaking facilities and the vineyard had to be partially replanted.
