Meet the producers: Antoine and Laurence Joly

After deciding that studying city water waste management wasn’t for him, Antoine took over from his dad Pierre in 1998. Shortly joined by his wife Laurence they began making and bottling their own wine. Organic since the 1970’s Pierre had used to sell grapes his grapes to the local co-op. Vineyards are  planted with Grenache and Syrah. Very intense vineyard work allows for early harvest, resulting in less-concentrated and lower-alcohol wines. They hand-harvest their 18 hectares of vines, don’t use synthetic yeasts, and don’t fine or filter.
