Emmanuelle Schoch is an indefatigable woman. With just eight hectares of vines, she works alone (no help from husband or children) apart from a little manual help from a worker who brings a horse drawn plough to the vines to clear weeds. "Seren" means star in Welsh. Her estate has vines around 400 metres up on the edge of the Cevennes, some 40 kms. north-west of Nîmes. Here the folded geology is fascinating, leading to a mosaic of different soils: schist, dolomite, limestone fragments and volcanic grès rouges.

Viticulture and winemaking is near natural: organic cultivation; hand-picking; fermentation using only natural yeasts; and no barrels at all. Unsurprisingly the wines show an extraordinary purity. We had to ship them!
