I joined the family estate in the late 90’s and I am today responsible for the management of Domaine Famille Picard in Burgundy.
In 2010, I decided to limit the treatments of our vines to the strict minimum, by implementing sustainable management techniques for most of the vineyard. I introduced biodynamics to obtain wines of very high quality, beautiful precision, while working in full harmony with nature.
Today, 110 hectares are worked entirely in “agro-ecology”. Since May 2019, Antoine Lepetit de la Bigne, specialist in biodynamic viticulture, has joined our estate as Technical Director to support us in this exciting adventure.
At the same time, I am an active member of several regional institutions including the BIVB (Bureau Interprofessionnel des Vins de Bourgogne). My goal is to raise awareness and initiate discussions on changes within our industry, changes that are closely linked to our environment. Through the years, I have acquired a deep understanding of all the steps and challenges involved from the soil to the bottle. This allows me to bring together all the main players of the industry to make concrete suggestions for our future.
Finally, the desire to protect our soil and strengthen biodiversity remains a major challenge.
I invite you to come and discover the fruit of our work around a tasting of "Au Pied du Mont Chauve".
I wish you a wonderful discovery of our terroir and our Estate.
