Childhood friends Mathieu Moron and Pierre Olivier Garcia began their new venture in 2016 when Mathieu’s father gave him a small parcel of vines in Nuits-Saint-Georges. They bought a house in the centre of Nuits and converted it into a winery. Mathieu and Pierre Olivier work the vines in order to restore biodiversity in the vineyards, something they feel has been lost due to the focus on single-crop farming across the region. Their ‘eco-attitude’ means they experiment with cereals, ploughing, planting trees and even use chickens to graze the land, in an attempt to bring back bees and butterflies to their 0.4 hectares of vineyard. In addition, they source grapes from a network of grower friends with whom they work closely, in order to have as much control over the quality as possible.
