Christophe Mignon comes from a long family tradition as vignerons in Festigny. His property consists of 7 hectares, mostly planted with Meunier - the most suitable vine for the local terroir. Mignon is able to mix different natural practices, such as biodynamics, phytotherapy, homeopathy and geobiology. Christophe and his wife Laurence have been following moon cycles for over 20 years, defetmining the rhythm in the fields and in the cave.
He explains his philosophy as follows: "To a vigneron moon is like a metronome to a musician". He is still looking for a symphony between the root and the environment, so Mignon employs one worker for every hectare. This is an ambitious and expensive method to protect low production but high quality.
