After working as a diving instructor and an underwater photographer, Marine began to learn about viticulture while living in Turkey; she then continued studying in Beaune. As a "finishing school", she spent three years working with Gaillac luminaries the Plageoles.
Marine was lucky to find her vineyards to rent; there used to be 20,000 hectares under vine in Gaillac, now only 5,000 remain.
Marine works with a mix of local varieties: Mauzac, Loin de l’Oeil, Braucol, Duras and then some Gamay, and Syrah.
