This sommelier turned winemaker has had extensive wine experience in Europe, her hospitality career spans her native Holland, the UK and Belgium.
In 2013 she came to Montlouis and met Noella Morantin, working a few days a week in the vineyard and cellar. Lisanne credits Noella for helping her fall in love with winemaking. Over the subsequent next years she gained additional experience with other vignerons, Bertrand Jousset & Tony Bainbridge in Anjou. At the time she was still living in Belgium and commuting to the Loire for vineyard stints, but this is when she knew she wanted her own project.
In March 2017 Lisanne made the move to Loire. She studied for a year, and even though she had now gained experience in the vines, she needed to attain the wine-school degree in order to be legally allowed to open a winery and get vineyards.
