CHÂTEAU MOULIN DES BLAIS – IV VENTUS

The farm of Château Moulin des Blais has been in my family since the 17th century. Our ancestors were millers mainly and also practiced polyculture and livestock for many years. The name of the estate comes from this historical activity: “moulin des blais” meaning “wheat mill”. In the 19th century, the millers’ house became a winemaking cellar and vines progressively got the upper hand. In the 1990s we had become full-time winegrowers.
After travelling the wine world, I took over the family estate in 2014 and converted it to organic farming as I arrived. My wish is to blend in my vineyard with the surrounding green landscape where fauna is warmly welcomed.
