It was while working conventionally for the local wine coop that Jacques developed a cancer because of the chemicals he was spraying on his vines. It took three years for him to get well enough to start farming again. When he did, he did so for himself and ‘Autrement’, or differently. His vineyards are on two lieu-dits overlooking the Rhône river, Les Vignes du Seigneurs and Le Cellier des Pauvres, and account for about 5 hectares. His wines are liquid purity.
