The wine making process
Jérémy doesn’t use any chimicals in his cellar, neither in the vineyard to let the grapes and the terroir express itself as much as possible. In 2015 the estate purchase wooden and stainless-steel cone-shaped tank, which allowed to make a plot vinification.
Before fully dedicate himself to making wines Jérémy was working as head of marketing in a French famous cloth brand. As the call of the countryside was too strong to ignore, he left everything to dedicate himself to Domaine Les Ondines (that he created himself). The passion starts when he used to carry his father’s grapes to the magician, who bought everything, and helped to the wine making process at the cellar.
