When you’re craving a glass of red wine, I suggest opening this one. It really hits the spot, even on a rainy day in June. Merlot is just easy like that!
Julie & Mathieu, children of Cognac, then students at Bordeaux Sciences Agro Institute of Agirucltural Sciences. 2013 brought wanderlust and learning. After graduation & wanting to test their newfound knowledge, they flew to Chile, then California, and finally British Columbia where, after discovering a literal ‘new world’ of wine, they settled for 3 years. 2016 marks their return to France, where their dream of owning an estate on the prestigious right bank of the river Garonne in Bordeaux is realized. Their youthful spirit has and will continue to take them far, and I am here for it!
