La Chapiniere, Touraine
In another life, Florence Veilex, a trained mathematician, was living near Paris and working for a non-wine-related big company. From her child years she had the dream of having her own farm and living in the countryside and she ultimately quit her job to realize that dream with her husband Eric Yung in 2011. Eric Yung also had an atypical carrer : A high-ranking cop in Paris in t he 1970s', he joined the Antigang (an elite police force), then quit, wrote a book about these shaky years in the force and became a journalist. The estate is now about 13 hectares, mostly Sauvignon (7 hectares), plus 3 hectares of Gamay, 2 hectares of Cöt and 1 hectare of Cabernet Franc. Florence chooses to work both naturally in the vineyard and the cellar.
