Stanislas Wallut

Domaine de Villeneuve, Rhône

www.larvf.com

This Rhône Valley vineyard, located in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation, comes from the 1993 merger of two families' estates - the Wallut and Roy de Blicquy. The idea was to become one the best wine producers of the appellation while focusing and following natural and biodynamic principles. The vineyard's plots are largely more than 95 years old, even if Stanislas Wallut also farms on younger vines (30 years old).

"The biodynamic philosophy is everywhere, allowing the estate to sustain a true pledge to respect the vines." - Stanislas Wallut
