Jérôme Gouin

ITINERARY OF A LOCAL CHILD

The blood of the earth flows through his veins. Since he was young, Jérôme always knew that he would become a winegrower, just like his grandfather before him. 

 

At his side, he learned the good gestures and learned how to observe, his eyes wide open on how the wines grew the best way. He was tought that being a good winemaker was also being able to stay humble and accepting that his work was to adapt to the environment and to respect the lifecycle of a vine in order to express the best out of every varietal of grapes, on every kind of soil.

"J have not subscribed to any kind of label like organic viticulture, but I have always worked sustainably, with naturl products, just like my grandparents did before me.

 

Working in close contact to my vines, and observing day by day how they react, helps me taking the right decisions at the right time.

 

Everything is just a question of good sense and... balance ..."
