About Les Lys
We’re a pair of wine lovers who share a similar vision, but very different experiences! For myself, (Marie-Hélène Veyrunes), it was first in the Languedoc and then California where my formative years were spent. I came back to work in the Côtes du Rhône and after a few years, I finally felt ready to start my own project. That’s when I started to work on Lys with Thomas, a few years ago now. Whereas for me (Thomas Faure), I worked further north in Croze-Hermitage, Condrieu, Côtes Rôtie and also Cassis. Our two very different sets of past experiences have given us a remarkable mixture of skills, as well as a global vision of wine.

It is between vines and scrubland that we have installed our domain. Just a step away from Uzès, and in front of the Cevennes, our vines profit from the influences of its beautiful mountains. In the fields surrounding the winery, Chardonnay, Syrah, and Grenache vines melt into the landscape, in the midst of the Capitelles. Our grapes draw their strength from the sandstone and limestone of our terroir so that our wines reflect freshness and minerality.

Our vineyard work is natural and consistent with our principles of biodiversity; the driving philosophy in the vineyard is always related to organic practices. The vineyard areas benefit from the oversight of the AOP Duché d’Uzès and the IGP Cévennes. Our grapes draw their strength from the sandstone and limestone of our terroir so that our wines reflect freshness and minerality. We are just a stone’s throw from Uzès, and facing the Cévennes, our vineyards enjoy the influence of its beautiful mountains.

The wines that we make are pure and precise, with fresh and delicate aromas, reflecting the terroir of the Duché of Uzès. Our underground cellar houses our different wooden vessels: barrels, half-barrels and frustoconical tanks but also our stainless-steel tanks, which allow us to keep wines for up to 24 months without bottling
