It’s a delightful family story. The father, Jacques, had the rather crazy idea that he’d like to work his own few vines for pleasure. This dream became reality when, in the70’s, he bought his first vineyard. Lionel, his son, began his first vintage in 1997 when he was 20! Lionel was born in the middle of September and every year he would blow his birthday candles out between 2 tanks!! Today the Belot vineyard stretches over 38 hectares, producing wines from vineyards all completely replanted or newly created.
