Laurent Miquel originally qualified as a mechanical engineer specialised in quality control from a Grande école near Paris, with a masters in quality management from Leeds University. I subsequently worked for Nissan Europe in Tyneside.
Inspired by my father's passion for winemaking, I made the decision to return to the wine business and enrolled in the University of Montpellier to study oenology. I worked for a local négociant for a time before taking the leap to starting my own business in 1996.
I am fortunate to have learnt with some of the great experts of winemaking in the region who, like my father, have participated in the revolution here over the last 25 years. They provide me with support and advice as well as information and knowledge gained from years of experience in quality improvement.
