Originally from Belgium, Aline worked 15 years in the legal department of a bank in Luxembourg. During this time, Aline began an oenological and sommelier course because she loved wine so much. To complete the course she had to train with a winemaker. She chose Lucien Salani from Domaine des Balmettes in Cases de Pène. After this experience Aline could not go back to the bank, nor to Luxembourg. She moved to the South of France with her family and has been making wine in Latour de France for 10 years now.
Aline has 4 cats, 2 dogs, 2 cows and 6 geese that are helping out on her biodynamic vineyard (except the cats, they just laze around the house).
She is running everything alone, with the help of her kids during harvest and some other committed members of the team that come every year to help out. Aline is a magnificent woman with great spirit and a very large heart. If you ever get the chance to visit her, then we could not recommend it more. Also, she has a fantastic natural wine restaurant (Le Coq a L’ane) just across the street where you can explore the wines of the region and chat to the many winemakers of the village.
