ABOUT THE PRODUCER

The Thévenet family has lived in Villié-Morgon, in the heart of the Beaujolais wine region, for the last four generations. Jean-Paul Thevenet is certainly a name in everyone’s ear ever since Kermit Lynch dubbed him, together with Marcel Lapierre, Guy Breton and Jean Foillard, as Beaujolais famous “Gang of Four” in the ‘80s. The essence of their philosophy: take a step back, appreciate and cultive old vines, apply organic farming practices, avoid the use of sulphur, let natural fermens do their magic and help the terroir expressing itself through minimal intervention.
