Isabelle Suire is a 4th generation vigneronne. Her great-grandfather was a vineyard worker in the in Berrie, a village south of Saumur in the Deux Sevres region. However, the family’s domaine really started when his son married Isabelle’s grandmother, whose family owned vineyards in Berrie as a facet of their polyculture farm. Together they cultivated the vines, bred animals, and farmed grains. As time went by, the family decided to focus solely on viticulture and sold off the other land.

Isabelle took over in 2007, and by 2021 she became the president of Saumur’s white wine association, where she met Romain Guiberteau – the president of the Saumur reds. Romain helped to confirm her desire to convert to organic viticulture after having already worked at two biodynamic domaines in the region (Château de la Tour Grise and Domaine de la Garrelière).
