Arnaud Combier

After "Viti" studies in Beaune, Arnaud Combier got his start at Domaine Valette in the Mâconnais region with Philippe, with whom he remains very close. He went on to vinify in the Prissé cellars before spending three years at Colbois in Chablis. His desire to make the most natural wines possible pushed him to take on his grandfather's vines in 1998.

He created great textured and precious whites for over ten years. Following the death of his grandfather, the immediate family decided to take back control of the vines. Arnaud then spent a short period in the South of France in Pézenas where he met Jeff Carrel, before moving on to help a big Burgundy wine merchant convert Beaujolais vines to organic practices. He teamed up with the Domaine des Moriers in 2018 to accompany them in a new adventure and to make wines with delicate aromas and tastes, these sensual wines that we love so much.

Benjamin Darnault

If you have crossed paths with the ego of a chef, you cannot imagine that of a winemaker… Benjamin, is the complete opposite: reserved and always a good listener.

Perhaps because, not only has he vinified throughout the Mediterranean arc, he has also travelled a lot around the world.
He is also one of the pioneers for organic wines in the Languedoc Roussillon, in charge of operations at the Château Maris at La Livinière (11).

Having rubbed shoulders with “nature”, he understands what we owe to it and what we should give back it. Jeff owes him a lot too, however he doesn’t want to rub shoulders with him…!

Domaine Saint-Roch

A locality known as Roquentin near Gaja et Villebieu, a few kilometres from Limoux, on the Oceanic side.
We are in the late 90s, the Americans are attacking! Mondavi, but also Stimson Lane or Canandaigua Wine lack wine grape varieties! They are looking for them everywhere! And they have found some right here.

Jeff arrived at the property late ’97, was he was young and a bit of an asshole (here’s hoping that time has worked its magic…), and never left. Leo, the one who pulls the strings, the cellar master, the long-distance runner (those who know him will understand) has just retired. Thank you Leo! Enter Paul, whom we hope to work with for the next 20 years if not more.
Let’s create that great Pinot we are waiting for!

Michel & Pompilia Guiraud

A locality known as Roquentin near Gaja et Villebieu, a few kilometres from Limoux,

Perched on the top of the hills, you can contemplate 2 centuries of the local wine growers. At Michel and Pompi’s, every stone, every bit of wood, iron work, paper and rag can tell you the story of this Languedoc winemaker.

Since Jeff fell for their “terroir”, he has never been disappointed, neither by man or soil. If he wasn’t there at their debut, he will be there from now onwards.

Domaine de Thulon

THE JAMBON’S. It sounds like a Rock n’Roll band, and that’s how it all started. April 2003, a Japanese customer asks if you have any Beaujolais Nouveau, and he will be arriving in the afternoon!

Thanks to an encounter with Laurent a few months previously, a simple phone call and Laurent arrives in the Languedoc directly from the Beaujolais region that day, and that’s where things kicked off. Ever since we share and invent, first La Cerise sur le Gâteau (or Cherry on the cake) followed by many others. It is above all a story of the Beaujolais population and the Jambon family: Annie, René, Carine, laurent, their spouses, children, friends, neighbours…

In the Beaujolais, even the trees are smiling, it’s a bit like Jeff’s second home.
