The women and men behind the cooperative
The alliance of our two cellars now brings together 145 members. Along with their love for the vineyards, they all share the same founding principles of cooperative membership. Joining forces allow them to pool and share the skills, know-how and standards needed to create quality wines.
Our cooperative members are protagonists in the cellars’ projects; theirs is each an individual commitment set within a collective approach that aims to enhance the treasures of their Terroir and the fruit of their labour using recognized know-how.
The team at the cooperative also includes employees who work to improve the cellar on a daily basis. Everyone contributes to the whole by contributing his or her particular skills.
