Location: Languedoc, France
Founded by Jean-Louis Pinto in 2011
Jean-Louis Pinto’s cellar is nestled among the rolling hills of Limoux, in the south-western corner of France. He is a negociant, which means he sources fruit from uncompromising organic growers from across the Languedoc, such as the legendary Remi Poujol.
He learned his trade working with Anthony Tortul of La Sorga, one of the co-founders of the ‘Brutal’ wine label, alongside Axel Prüfer, Laureano Serres and Joan Ramon Escoda. It is with this same philosophy and gusto for experimentation that Jean-Louis approaches winemaking. His cuvées range from aromatic and fresh red and white blends to dense and concentrated reds more in line with what is expected of the South of France. He uses a range of vessels for fermentation and vinifies with zero additions.
We’re excited to be offering the full lineup of Jean-Louis’s work and are confident that they will be essential drinking this summer.
Drink chilled, drink fast.

Jean-Louis recently purchased some lands and is planting his own vines. We're hoping to taste some 100% Es D'Aqui wines soon!
