Out of a thousand passions, there is one which has always driven me and has done for years: wine. The bright green of its vines, its slow labour, its peaceful conception and its birth which today finds its expression in the
Château de Bacchus
At the foot of Mont Ventoux, classified by Unesco as a biosphere reserve, it watches over a unique vineyard spread out at its feet. It enjoys sunshine and a variety of terroirs which, having been worked by mankind since 1615, give the wines of Bacchus their character.
Like a thunderbolt, I felt an urge to tell my story through an exceptional estate, a unique wine that expresses the daring and the passion which sustain me.

A savoir-faire drawn from nature
Our farmed land benefits from all the care and attention required by quality agricultural practice, committed to respecting health and the environment.
Our grapes are harvested by hand when they reach an exact ripeness to retain the balance and richness of the fruit’s natural constituents.
We use vines that are over 50 years old to make fine wines.
