François Blanchard / Touraine,Loire / 3 ha/ Since 2003
François‘ grapes aren‘t growing in a vineyard. Trees, wild grown ivy, waist-high grass, waterholes, nearby forests. Throughout the day birds, marsh harriers, at night deers, foxes, wild boars. Sauvignon, Cabernet. Among all this, on a height in the Touraine. Grand-Cléré. Not a vineyard, not a parcel or classified site. A singular whole, whose freest expression François Blanchard perpetuates and reflects in every single one of his untranslatable "boissons vivantes“. Be it wine - or beer.
