Julien Cornud the winegrower is also a botanist and loves his terroir. His vineyards are located in Caromb, a small village at the foothill of Mont Ventoux. His vineyard has the particularity to contain pieces of flint and for that reason Julien Cornud used to joke he could make a very nice Sauvignon Blanc like in the Loire region.
