About the maker: With Flemish origins, Léon Verhaeghe left his native country in the early 20th century to settle in Cahors, south-western France. His son Charles together with his wife Marie-Thérèse started a farm with mixed cultures in 1958 planting some vines on the property, and adding one hectare of vineyards in three different plots every year. Their two sons, Pascal and Jean-Marc Verhaeghe then took the reins, Pascal takes care of the vinification and Jean-Marc of the vines.They started to work under organic farming methods in the early nineties by banning all herbicides from the vineyards and managed to get rid of all chemical spraying agents by 2002. After years of conversion, they made their first certified organic wine in 2012. Today, the certified 27 hectares is planted with 90% of Malbec.
