In 2017, after having proven himself around the world and alongside famous winemakers, Bastien Mousset came back to Vendée. With his father’s help, Alain Mousset, Bastien gives birth to his project of having his own vineyard.
The name of the domain was chosen because it is located on the outskirts (“à l’Orée” in French) of Les Sables d’Olonne, whose inhabitants used to be called “les Sabia” in the old local dialect.
At the very beginning, for his first vintage the young winemaker initiates the conversion to organic farming for his 4.7 hectares of vines. Through new encounters, Bastien surrounds himself with a team of vine-and-wine enthusiasts. Together, they restructure the vineyard with new plantations and double-grafting of older vines. As a result of the team’s hard work during these first years, the domain now bears 9 hectares of vines and the team plans to keep up the work to reach 10 hectares in the years to come.
