Domaine des Terres Vivantes; The Pleasure of Work

Working in the wine world, one frequently meets wonderful people with incredible passion for what they do and the land they work. But you rarely come across people with the dedication, warmth, and world view as Ludovic and Marie Gros of Domaine des Terres Vivantes. More than just a vineyard– although a very special one–Terres Vivantes is a self-contained ecosystem that is equal parts poly-culture farm, boulangerie, flour mill, and stomping ground for Tufi, the Gros’ extremely fluffy dog. Terres Vivantes means “living earth” and everywhere you turn at this domain you can see, smell, and taste the vibrancy of life around you.
