Born in Besançon, Manuel Girard will study engineering in biology. It was after spending more than 22 years in the field of medical research that he decided to give up everything in 2019. He passed a BPREA in viticulture and left to learn how to make natural wine, to our greatest joy. Manuel Girard will start by planting a few Syrah vines in his garden, just to get his hands on it, then he will spend the harvest and vinification at Nuit St Georges at Philippe Gavignet. Subsequently, it was with the Bertrand Family, in the beautiful Fleurie appellation in Beaujolais, that he worked for more than 2 years to acquire knowledge and skills. And it is at the beginning of 2021 that he will acquire his first plots, the Initiatique vintage is born! He was then 50 years old, the same age as the plots he took over. Then in 2022 it will be 0.6 ha in the Fleurie appellation that he will lease again. Today the estate extends over 1.8 ha including plots in Fleurie, Morgon and some Chardonnay in the commune of Lancié. The wines are vinified naturally, with as few inputs (so2) as possible.
