Bruno Duchêne is originally from the Loire Valley where his family had a thriving business selling farm machinery. He then became a distributor of wild mushrooms in the Loire and Burgundy and discovered wine, particularly meticulous made, non-interventionist wines. He then worked for nine months with Frederic Cossard of Domaine Chassorney in Saint Romain (where biodynamic farming is practised) and it was here that he learnt how to make wine. This wine is nearly 100% Grenache but does have a small percentage of Carignan. The wines are names and bottled based on their farming practices. The La Pascole vineyard is partially ploughed by hand.
