After a brief stint as a chemistry student, Valérie soon realised that the nearby oenology campus looked much more appealing. Today Valérie makes wine under her own labels, which are a playful reference to her convivial and rebellious nature. In the words of Valérie herself:
“I make wines to enjoy - it’s about conviviality and simplicity. You don’t need to be a wine connoisseur - the main thing is to take pleasure and enjoy!”
