CURIOSITY

AS A TEENAGER, VIVIEN STUDIED WINEMAKING IN ALSACE, IN THE DOMAINE LEON BOESCH WHERE HE LEARNT ABOUT KEY PRACTICES IN BIODYNAMIC FARMING. HE THEN SPENT TIME WORKING FOR WINE MAKERS IN NEW ZEALAND AND FRANCE. HE EVENTUALLY DECIDED TO MOVE BACK TO MINERVOIS TO TAKE OVER THE FAMILY VINEYARD. THE FAMILY’S 13 HECTARES OF VINES ARE FARMED ENTIRELY ORGANICALLY & BIODYNAMICALLY AND VIVIEN BELIEVES THAT THE COMBINATION OF BIODYNAMIC PRACTISES AND LIMESTONE BEDROCK ARE THE SECRETS BEHIND THE FRESHNESS & BALANCE OF HIS WINES.
