« My estate is an old farm that emanates tradition through its beautiful stone houses overlooking the village. My home is also my workplace, perched on the hillside of Remont in Chénas. I am surrounded by woods, fields, and vineyards. This mosaic of landscape amazes me every day and gives my wines a singular expression and sense of harmony.. » Artisan Wine maker: Pascal Aufranc.
