“After 7 generations of vinegrowers, Véronique Barthe, first girl of the family since the French Revolution, inherits in 1992 the family estate. She puts all her passion and energy to give it a new start adding her personal feminine touch to this demanding challenge. The taking over seems to be ensured by now, since Pierrick, Manon, and Célia already share this passion for the vineyards!”
