Michel farms a small property near the village of Vauxrenard in the Beaujolais with about 7 hectares under vine. When we first started to work with him in 2013 most of the wines were named with the appellation they came from. The majority – the wine from the home vineyards – was Beaujolais Villages by virtue of being in the Vauxrenard commune. But he also made a Moulin à Vent and Fleurie cuvée.
Michel believes passionately in biodiversity and soil quality and his vines are dotted through his farm which sits in the middle of the forests that surround the village of Vauxrenard.
