THIS IS FRANCE
France is a Multi-talented professional with an incredible taste for the arts, gastronomy and wine. She represents the beauty of her country of origin and its nature, its authenticity, and its rich heritage.
France’s journey began in 2003 when she gave grapevines to her husband for Father’s Day because he was very keen on having a vineyard. Passionate about the production of high-quality wines, she restores an abandoned farm and plants the first hectare of vines in the historic district of L’Acadie, in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu.
Currently, their vineyard extends over 5 hectares and is continually expanding. France is passionate about organic farming and welcomes American and French hybrids as well as vinifera. Being one of the few women owning a vineyard, France stands out thanks to acquiring Nordic organic vineyard title in a profession long associated with men.
Open-minded, she loves welcoming people and giving an insight into the culture and her pride in working the land. Le Mas des Patriotes makes every wine with care and passion while respecting its terroir’s richness.
