About This Vineyard
It was in 1960 that Patrice Michon settled in Brem-Sur-Mer, inheriting several acres of vines belonging to his father. Slowly but surely he bought more vines to increase the capacity of the vineyard which is now over 32 ha. In 1970 he moved to Ile d’Olonne and built a modern winery along with modern wine-making facilities. He was joined in 1984 by his two sons Thierry and Eric. The vineyard which has been farmed organically since 1995 borders the old salt marshes of the Pays des Olonnes. The vines are planted facing south-west for the organic Pinot Noir, Gamay and Cabernet and south-east for the organic Chardonnay and Chenin on clay and schisty soils.
