"I bought my first hectare at 17 years old, then in 1978, I took advantage of aid that was granted to young farmers to increase my vines to 8 ha (19 acres). At that time I sold my grapes to the cooperative. I did my apprenticeship in the field and I also followed this with some theoretical training. It is to those men who trained me that I owe my gratitude. In 1988 I bought 24 hectares (59 acres) and installed myself on the site of a former mill on the river Orbieu.
