From Darmstadt to Anjou: Liv Vincendeau realises her wine dream in the Loire Valley
Liv Vincendeau is originally from Darmstadt. After studying chemistry in York and Strasbourg, she moved to the Loire Valley in 2000 to train in viticulture and oenology. Enraptured by the beauty of this picturesque province, she then fulfilled her big dream in 2014 and founded her own domaine on the hills above the village of Rochefort sur Loire, in the protected landscape of La Corniche Angevine south of Angers.
Liv's vineyards are planted with very old Chenin Blanc vines and, since 2015, with some Grolleau Noir. Organic farming from the beginning, meticulously biodynamic since 2019.
