Five generations of wine growers have preceded Gil and Dorota Lagarde in their passion for working the land and growing their own vine. However, their gamble on the future was not won in advance, nor that on taking up the family property, because the first calling of the couple had been teaching for several years. Only at the beginning of the nineties was Gil – grandson and only son to keen vine growers – confronted with an essential choice : selling the property and forgetting the efforts of his forefathers, or resuming their work as craftsmen of the vine. He chose to resume his ancestors’ activity, and thus began an adventure which has been very gratifying to both of us for the last fifteen years !
