Catherine was a journalist before she bought her vines in the Herault in the commune of Saint Drezery. She still writes but dedicates most of her time to her vines and wine. She works the vines in a biodynamic spirit but is certified organic. For a while Catherine shared a winery with another local vine-grower but in 2015 she built her own.
This would have been Catherine’s Le Rosé for 2019, but the scorching heat meant that even after a direct press this is more red than pink. Supple and delicate fruit.
