Artisanal Vinification and Aging

Our activity of artisanal buyer-grower vinifier .

Since a long time Jo wanted to create the business of a buyer-grower of high quality as is well known in Burgundy and in the Rhone valley.

Joseph wanted to work with different appellations and terroirs.

The idea fusioned and the merchant business was created on the different terroirs of the Loire using the varietals of Chenin blanc and Cabernet franc.

We work with growers as partners.

In order to work as a buyer of fruit our requirements are as follows:

  • We select the parcels of vineyards with a preference in organic culture
  • We decide on the harvest date
  • Our choice of fruit or juice

With these requirements we need to have a trustful understanding with the winegrower and a good knowledge of the Loire Valley.

Aging wine is a marriage between time and micro oxygenation. We age our wines in French oak ranging from 225 liters to 600 liters for an average of between 10 and 24 months depending of the wine.
