We're talking to you about his Winery
The Maison en Belles lies is above all Pierre Fenals, winemaker passionate in Saint-Aubin who produces top class biodynamic and natural wines.
An astonishing journey as that of Pierre Fenals. After studying organic chemistry and molecular biochemistry, he first worked for pharmaceutical laboratories on the outskirts of Paris, then he accompanied his wife on a professional adventure around the world of fashion and decoration.
In 2008, he took the big leap and bought a few hectares of vines. Then in 2009, with the financial help of a few friends, Pierre moved to Saint-Aubin where he created Maison in Belles Lies. At first, he cultivates 2.5 hectares of vines and completes his production by buying 3.5 hectares of organic grapes or grapes in the process of being converted.
His vines are grown biodynamically and he buys his grapes from winegrowers who work in this way and with whom he shares a lot. All his herbal teas and purines are prepared and spread by him and he uses only natural copper and volcanic sulphur to protect and fortify his vines. He also allows himself some small ploughing from time to time to control the grassing and allow the vines to breathe. Nature, quoi!
It is with great pleasure that we propose you to discover the different vintages of La Maison en Belles Lies, organic and natural wines. They are worth the detour... naturally!
