Producer Profile by curator Siôn Iorwerth
The Domaine des Grottes is located in the village of St Etienne des Ouillieres, south of Brouilly. The vineyards cover an area of about 7.5 hectares, all certified by Demeter since 2007, are located in the heart of the Beaujolais-Villages appellation but the wines are downgraded to Vin de France.
The vines are treated as little as possible (Romain des Grottes does not even use copper), whereas biodynamic preparations are widely used, many of which are based on nettle. Due to the very low density of plants (about 4000 plants per hectare) and the very low yield (12hl / ha), only a few thousand bottles are produced per year.
