Farming organically was an obvious path for Emmanuel as he grew up watching his father doing it. When he struck out on his own, he did so with less than one hectare, adding gradually a plot here and a plot there. Ten years later, he had accumulated eleven hectares of vines, scattered over a few different appellations. Considered a pioneer of biodynamic farming in the region, Emmanuel’s wines are balanced, precise and elegant.
