Originally from Alsace, where he studied winemaking (and was also a postman), Serge moved south and bought 4 hectares of old, hillside vineyards planted with low-yielding Carignan, Grenache Noir, Syrah and Grenache Blanc. As we see all over the ‘New France’ plots considered too small to be commercially useful have been reinvigorated with toil and commitment of individuals like Serge, who arrived to start his project in 2007.

As you may expect, Serge’s work is a very traditional with very little intervention in the vineyard or in the winery.  He harvests everything by hand and works completely organically, using minimal sulphur throughout the winemaking process.  These are at once savage and satisfying wines that reflect Serge’s gentle manner but yet are dominated by their terroir.

Serge works is a very traditional  way with very little intervention in the vineyard or the winery. He harvests everything by hand.  La Vigne du Facteur is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Carignan from the hills around beautiful walled town of Uzès. 20-30 year old vines. Élevage in stainless steel after a 21 day fermentation.
