Location: Loire Valley, France
Founded in 2015 by Vincent Wallard
From curator Siôn Iorwerth:
"Vincent Wallard has been a prominent figure in the natural wine movement for well over a decade, having helped Les Caves de Pyrène open London’s Terroir in 2008, before moving to Argentina to begin his winemaking project Cuatro Manos. After a few years of working harvest and making wine in both Argentina and France, he finally settled in the Loire Valley, where he’s both purchasing fruit and renting and farming a few parcels, most notably from Jérôme Balmet in South Beaujolais and Jérôme Lenoir of Domaine Les Roches in Chinon.
Cue our introduction to Vincent: he recently bought a house in Berrie, only a few steps away from François Saint-Lô’s cellar on the Rue des Belles Caves and home to a tightly knit community of makers whom we met last year. Thanks to Alex and François an introduction was made, and we were able to secure a small shipment of wines from Vincent, a producer that we have long coveted. The connections within the natural wine community that we often speak of are clear in these wines.
