After travelling across Africa, the Middle East and South America, working for pharmaceutical companies, Benoît Viot chose to change his life. “I made my first wine, a disgusting grape juice, in my bathroom,” he explains. He now makes much better cuvées (not in a bathroom) with his wife Servane at their estate, le Chemin des Rêves, near Montpellier. From their organically-farmed 20 hectares of vines they produce AOC Pic St Loup, Languedoc and Grés de Montpellier wines.
