The Story

Guillaume Marteaux started his own cellar from scratch : he bought a cement mixer on the French craigslist, and it took him 7 years to build his winery. True man of the land, he started with less than one hectare that he purchased from his father, and has grown it to 8.5 hectares today, all located in Boneil, in the Vallee de la Marne. His estate is certified organic since 2022 and farmed biodynamically since 2018. He's confident in the power of the plants for the health of his vineyard and the quality of his grapes, therefore he uses a collection of vegetation such as nettle, horsetail and others. Guillaume makes his own biodynamic preparations, and even has a coffer when he store all the ingredients needed. This coffer is radiation proof, as Guillaume wants the energy of this products to remain as pure as possible. His wines are the genuine reflect of the terroir : no fining, no filtration, no malolactic fermentation.
