To tend a vineyard and make fine wines one must, it is s aid, have doubts and beliefs. And they all certainly had their doubts when they launched Rhône Vignobles in 1990. Twenty-five years later, they still do, such is the intensity of the quest for perfection that drives them.
Nor is there a shortage of beliefs in this very vigorous bunch, who laugh until they cry and speak words of wisdom. “Wine must wed human intelligence with a terroir’s force and authenticity at every stage in its production,” they state with one philosophy. What they all have is soul, vines and sincerity – each with their own history, sensibility, and way of listening to and respecting nature.
Despite their talents and successes, they have never attemted to be a “dream team”, never sought to claim to be “right”. They simply prefer to put their heads together, sharing experiences and values, listening to each other’s, mutually boosting each others confidence.
