Let The Summer Begin ! 🌞

The French Provence is home to some of the world’s most gorgeous vineyards… They are part of its history, of its culture. Thanks to my relatives, I am lucky enough to have become very familiar with this region, which overflows with fantastic and spellbinding wines. I have known Patrice Moreux for a very long time. A friend of my father’s, he also worked by his side for over twenty years. I am proud to say I now have the privilege of continuing this precious collaboration.

Getaway to the Bordeaux wine region

Getaway to the Bordeaux wine region

During my last visit to the Bordeaux wine region a few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to come across an exceptional producer – a woman named Chantal Benito, who is extremely passionate about her craft and produces wine of a great quality. Located in the Bordelais, the three estates that make up the Benito Vineyard (Château Saint-Nicolas, Château Tour du Videau and Château Graveyres) span 32 hectares near Cadillac, on the Garonne’s right bank. Chantal Benito, who is in charge of the domain since 2005, has turned to eco-friendly wine-making, banning sulphur from her production. This has given birth...
