Info from Steven Graf Wine:

"Agneray was born in the département du Nord, in the Hauts-de-France region of France bordering Belgium. He spent years in Paris studying literature and frequenting wine bars. His interest in wine brought him to Loire to work with La Grange aux Belles before settling in Sabran, the Gard, not too far away from Domaine Leonine, to pursue his own winemaking in 2013. His enthusiasm for arts and culture is apparent on his wine labels, referring to Faulkner and Alain Bashung.

Starting with a plot of 3 hectares (named the Saint-Pons), the domain now extends to 8.5 hectares of vines in production. A team of four work the domain on a regular basis: Arouna, an apprentice, Alexis, a part time worker who is also developing a market garden with a hen house, Fred and his sister Delphine.
All together they are actively building a shed to store their vineyard equipment, and plan to complete a wine making cellar within 5 years."
