François Saint-Lô's winery is located in the Gruyère village of Berrie, in the heart of the Anjou, known for its troglodyte cellars. He starts working in restaurants and wine bars, and after meeting producers like Olivier Cousin and Eric Dubois, he throws himself headlong into wine production. He buys an old house near Berrie, about 25 km south of Saumur, used in the past for the production of wine and, since 2012, he begins the restoration phase with the help of friends. With the house there are a few hectares of old vineyards planted with chenin blanc, grolleau and Cabernet Franc. Like his mentors, François prefers to work with horses in the vineyards and all other work is done by hand. In the cellar he uses a hundred-year-old curve press that was there when he took over the place. This gentle and slow pressing seems to add a delicacy and elegance to the wines, soft, fresh and with finesse.
