We're talking to you about his Winery
«A Coin sur Terre", a small coin sur terre created by Edouard and Lane Sentex in 2015. This little corner is named Vauvert (Gard), the southernmost vineyard of the Rhone Valley, at the gateway to the Camargue. Precisely located in the center of a triangle formed by the cities of Nîmes, Montpellier and Arles, overlooking the Petite Camargue at the junction of Languedoc and Provence.
The Winery although young is not in the hands of a beginner. Edouard has been building himself up for many years, 4 years in the Bordeaux region (his native region) working in family but also prestigious estates (Château Haut-Brion). In 2006, he moved to the Gard, with a job in technical management, at Winery Scamandre for his 7 years in Organic Agriculture. Then Edouard started to see what was happening in Chile in 2010 and then New Zealand in 2013. That's when Edouard decided to go and meet Lane (his wife now), then working in China. They met while Lane, in 2012, was working at a Winery near Winery Scamandre. Following their reunion in China, they took the opportunity to travel around the Pacific and decided to return to the little corner of the world where their love was born....
The loop is closed and this project will take shape from 2015 with the help of many people.
"We guarantee that all our wines are produced with indigenous yeasts, with little or no sulphite, without fining, without filtration to guarantee our customers the best representation of our terroir and our know-how ".
A superb couple, full of energy, desire and already know-how. We were as enthusiastic about this moment of exchange during our meeting as we were about the quality of the wines we tasted. Edouard, Lane, keep going! All the best !
