In 1983, Jean-Marie Berthier moved to his wife's village, Sainte-Gemme-en-Sancerre, where they built up their own domaine from scratch. In 1998, he took over the Montbenoit vineyards in the Coteaux du Giennois, plots that his father-in-law had worked for many years. Today they work 20 hectares with great care and dedication to producing outstanding quality wines. Clément now handles the marketing of the wines, having spent 2 years in Canada and the USA as assistant winemaker in the Willamette Valley, OR (Soléna Estate).
