The Côtes du Marmandais is one of south west France's lesser known appellation immediately east of Bordeaux. Back in the 1970’s Elian da Ros’ father was a farmer who grew tomatoes, cereals and tobacco and who also had a small vineyard. The grapes were then sent to the local co-op. At a very early age Elian dreamt of being a vigneron and producing his own wine. It is then at the tender age of 14 that he went on to study viticulture and oenology at the local school. Élian da Ros has been farming organically with fanatic dedication since 2000.
