After having worked 10 years at Domaine Chabanon in Lagamas, near Montpellier,
Philippe Formentin, became a « flying winemaker », consulting at vineyards around the world –
in California, Corsica, Russia, and India.

In 2011, Philippe discovered a small winery nestled in the wild « Garrigue » – the south of France equivalent to the « Outback » – just outside Clermont l’Hérault. Here in the foothills of the Larzac, Philippe has brought life to his dream of making his own natural artisan wine.

Philippe’s first trial Cuvée, « Opi d’aqui », 2011, quickly sold out. Encouraged by this success, Philippe has created for the 2012 vintage, 5 distinctive natural cuvées.


Opi d’aqui is born!
