"I was born in this house, with memories of my grandfather coming into the courtyard every morning and telling me stories about the vine and wine. He passed on his passion to me through his emotion... We are said to have the "most beautiful job in the world", it is without a doubt... I am each year, on the paths of the 4 seasons, rocked by the swell of the climates, the truth of the senses and the taste. It is the stamp of a family, of a wine, of a history... ours ". Marie-Hélène Yung-Théron
