Staff Pick Notes

In the past they used to sell their grapes to important producers in the area. Now they are working on their own wine. Jean Esprit and his wife Lydia focus about preserving the original terroir. They farm organically and respect biodiversity. They also plant cherries and apricots. Jean studied oenology in Bourgogne and gained experience working on the field all over the world.
