The Farm

Place where the magic of crops takes place, of the transformation of fruits into vinegars, derivative products or alcohols.

How to get there:
At the entrance to the village of Saint-Jean, look for the sign "Vinaigrerie Distillerie" on the main path, go up the coast, turn right. The farm is 300 meters further on, on a private road.

- Welcome to our home -
In 2006, convinced, I took the turn of organic farming with the arrival of my wife, a naturopath, who joined the company. Our fruit crops are all certified organic.

The company combines organic farming, local sourcing and an artisanal processing method.

Visit our facilities, by appointment.
