Organized by

Johann Pepin

We are a Franco-American couple who moved to the South of France from Chicago in 2003 to take over the family vineyard, leaving behind our jobs in finance and public relations for fresh air, starry skies and organic farming. We believe in respecting the environment, that's why we use no chemicals and let mother nature provide the water for our plants. Our 11 hectares produce grapes, olives, apricots, cherries, plums, apples, pears, pomegranates, figs, almonds, hazelnuts and black winter truffles.
