Alexandre Bain is a wonderful but rare specimen. He wasn't born into wine, his father wasn't a winemaker, and he wasn't born in Pouilly-Fumé. However, his grandfather owned a few plots in the area, which he had bought as a rental investment. In 2007 Alexandre developed a curiosity for winemaking and persuaded his grandfather to let him work on the vines. Gradually, he started buying more and more parcels from growers who were scaling down, and today owns 9 ha.
