Jo PITHON and Isabelle PITHON, Joseph PAILLE and Wendy PAILLE
In 1990, when Jo Pithon and Isabelle met, Joseph was 5 years old and said to Jo, “I want to be a wine grower, because growing wine is what I know.” Now at age 24, he learnt that knowledge is nothing, without a solid experience. After finishing his viticulture exam, he worked in Roussillon, a négoce winery in Burgundy, and in Anjou and Saumur in the Loire. He continued gaining experience in Ontario, Canada and Virginia, United States. Joseph is responsible in particular for taking care of the vines and regular work in the cellar.
South African born, Wendy met Joseph while working in the same winery in the United States. She helps Joseph care for the vines and assists in the cellar. She helps Jo with exporting and maintains the website.
Isabelle is responsible for the administration, accounting and wine orders in France. Often you can see her assisting in the vineyard and in the cellar.
Jo taught himself with a glass in the hand, and hanging out in cellars since age thirty to appreciate wine with quality. He gained this experience all over the world, but of course the passion started in the Loire Valley.
His primary work is to search for grapes with superior quality, meet wine growers and install a climate of confidence. He assists Joseph in the cellar, and together with Isabelle and Wendy, sells and promotes the wine. Jo loves cooking and pairing wine with his meal creations.
