Christian Chabirand, like me, at some point, decided to change direction and do something that his heart beat faster. In his case, that was making wine.

MijnWijnPlein - Prieure La Chaume - Christian Chabirand - Fiefs Vendéens, Vix,Before that, he had to start building a vineyard. For this he has chosen a very special location. The wine region Fiefs Vendéens is divided into four municipalities: Brem, Mareuil, Pissotte and Vix. The latter is perhaps the least known.


In 1997 there was only one winemaker in and around Vix. Vix is close to the sea, is situated on a hill in the middle of a plateau that used to be a swamp and has a beautiful limestone surface. He plants 14 hectares with 70% Merlot, 15% Cabernets sauvignon, 10% Pinot Noir and 5% Négrette. Christian works completely organic and has a very low yield of 30 hl / ha. This is to produce healthy, ripening and the best possible grapes. Christian really likes opera that explains his names.
