We had the good fortune of connecting with Xavier Arnaudin and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Xavier, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
Being in Harmony with myself and meticulously select every persons who work with me according 2 things, being genuine and care about what they do; the rest I can teach. The wine is alive and aware of our intention, more precisely the wine feel the vibes in the cellar, Happy cellar makes Happy wines. The vineyard choice and farming are important, I believe the environment of the cellar brings this unique touch, who makes the wines different. The success of my brand is based on a group of people who have fun at work and work hard, our rewards is the smile on your face when you drink our wines.
Hope it was clear, I am from France and my English is not the best, feel free to correct any misspelling.

I will take them to the vineyard, I really enjoy Riven Rock Estate situated in Cambria, I live in Slo and I will take the one to get there, Outstanding view, of course I will pack few cheeses and a bottle of Riesling I made from there.
