Choosing the vines and his terroir over children’s games of his age, Michel came very young to tending the vineyards and crafting wine. His favourite free time activity was to roam his terroir, getting to know and understand each separate plot. The alchemy between Michel and his wine-lands came about very quickly. For him, his vocation was laid out: he would be a vinegrower-winemaker.
Once he had passed his vine and wine diploma, and after having spent a number of years working with his father and grandfather, Michel took over La Millière in 1983, making him the 5th generation of Arnaud vinegrower-winemakers.
Since then, and in the name of the passion for wine that is his inheritance, Michel has continued to exactingly apply the knowledge handed down to him by his parents and grandparents. In his footsteps comes Vincent, his elder son, who has just joined the estate. He continues the family history that has been at the heart of La Millière for many decades into the 6th generation.
