Frédéric grew up in Normandy and met his Canadian wife Elaine at university in Lille. Even though they live a nomadic lifestyle (Canada, India, Singapore and USA) Frédéric spends about half of his time in Faugères. Since early age, he had a calling for farming and the fierce desire to become a winemaker. After university and a short stint as a broker, he decided to take over 10 ha of old vines in Faugères that have been organically farmed for twenty years. We love Frédéric's wines because they're fresh, vibrant and superbly expressive of the Faugères terroir.
