Veronique is the most recent team member to join us as of October 2016. However, she was the first one to be involved in Biac way back in April 2007: we met her when touring the neighboring countryside looking for an olive tree there she was as manager! for many years after, Veronique helped us choose trees, seed mixes for our wild meadow: her knowledge of plants (which she lists surprisingly in perfect Latin!!!!) is mind blowing... if you believe in horse whisperers, then Veronique is definitely a plant whisperer...!
Veronique grew up in a “green” environment, tending her father’s vines from a very young age ; in those days , girls were not considered fit to work in wineries : the only vineyard tasks open to them were the toughest ones outdoors! : as a result, Veronique started her working life in a plant nursery and after graduating from the Ecole d’agriculture Creon Blanquefort (which has sadly closed down since), found a job at the Coste nursery where we met her …24 years later !
Veronique is now an integral part of the team, in charge of our boutique and other related winery work, but as her first love is the garden, you can see her often lending a hand to Patrick when the roses and other plants need a “whisperer’s" touch!!!!
