Maverick female winemaker in the middle of nowhere 60km north of Nantes. She is a hardy winemaker, determined to make great wine while leaving as little marks on the land as possible. There were no vines for miles around her villlage - La Chapelle-Glain and planting vines there was officially forbidden. UNSTOPPABLE, Xavière lobbied the local council to eventually give her permission to plant her vineyard. Les Terres Bleues is the name – reflecting the blue schist that predominates on her 1.5-hectare plot.
