Sylvère Trichard took over his Grandmother’s four hectares of vines near the Beaujolais commune of Blacé in 2012. Along with his partner Mathilde Sothier, the pair work with biodynamic principles in mind, in accordance with the lunar calendar; but not pursuing strict certification. Vines are between 20 to 80 years old and planted on sandy clay soils over granite.
