Motivated since his early youth by viticulture and winemaking, David began his vocational training in High School in 1999 at the Lycee viticole de Beaune, a boarding school focused on teaching wine studies. His formal training ended in Dijon in 2009 with an oenology diploma from the Institute Jules Guyot at the University of Burgundy. During ten years of enriching studies, he completed numerous internships in prestigious and well-recognized estates.

He began in 2003, with François Perrin of Beaucastel in Chateauneuf-du-Pape, with a very atypical vintage year. Then, in order to discover the vision of the wine outside of the old continent, he chose to travel to New Zealand. It was in the small family-owned winery, Neudorf Vineyards, with an international reputation for quality Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in the New World, that he helped to create the wine from the 2005 vintage with Tim Finn. In Burgundy, it was first Olivier Lamy (Domaine Hubert Lamy in Saint Aubin) who welcomed him in 2004 and 2007, then Aubert de Villaine (Domaine Romanée-Conti) in 2008.

These fabulous moments of exchange and sharing gave him indispensable experiences in order to follow in their steps of winegrowing excellence.

He is assisted in this difficult task by his grandmother Simone, who is a big help with her experience and dynamism, and by Richard and Thierry, experienced and competents winegrowers who strive to follow good progression of the work over essential tasks from the vineyard to cellar, to end in quality wine production.
