Xavier Braujou started his life as a woodcutter. But his real passion was wine. He started La Terrasse d’Elise in 1998. His vines and wines are cared for as naturally as possible, with minimum treatments in the vineyards, and with no fining, natural yeasts and very little sulphur used in the winemaking process. Xavier’s specialty is to blend terroirs from a same grape variety to best express its character. Although 85% of Xavier’s land is within the Appellation, all his wines are labelled as Vin de Pays because they are mono-varietal and thus do not comply with the local AOC.
