About the maker
Marc, Julian and Gérald are the trio behind Le Grange aux Belles farming organically with herbal infusions such as nettles, horsetail and buckthorn.
La Grange aux Belles is a 15-hectare organic estate, with vineyards spread over 5 communes in the AOC Coteaux de l'Aubance. Marc Houtin created the domaine back in 2004. Since 2007 Marc and Julien Brestau have worked hard to convert all their farming to organic, whilst continuing to re-plant vines and expand their plots. The sub soils consist of elements like schist, silt and clay on top. This environment is quite dry, with very little rain and a lot of heat. The wines are always reflective of the climate, the grapes, the soil and the topography.See the La Grange aux Belles collection here
