This led her to the Ventoux where she purchased vineyards in 2001 with the aim of building a "one woman winemaking operation" making the wine in rented space in another winery. The early years were not easy with the downpours of 2002 and hail in 2003 totally destroying her crop.
She now has 12 hectares split between Ventoux and Beaumes de Venise where she managed to open her own cellar in 2009. The vines are grown on organic principles and the winemaking is straightforward with as little intervention as possible. The wines are very pure and precise: "fruit is very important to me" says Corinna, something which is very evident in the 2016 vintage. "I like 2016, everything is there" she says in summary.
