description

Anthony Thévenet works and lives among his vines and animals. His life is defined by his quest to preserve the history of the region through a steadfast devotion to his vines. The vineyards are all farmed organically with very little mechanization and no pesticides. All grapes are harvested by hand and sorting is done directly in the vineyard.

Anthony’s vineyard work is done strictly under organic culture and he and his father, Guy, do everything by hand, including weed removal with the help of their metal horse—a small tractor used to pull a metal blade they walk behind and guide by hand to isolate weeds and barely skim the topsoil in order to have as little impact on the beneficial microbes and insects only inches below the surface. Anthony’s father left his career as a Mercedes mechanic to support his son’s dream and obvious talent, and he now spends all of his time tending to the vines. There are no treatments in their vineyards aside from copper and sulfur—both legal for organic and biodynamic farming, and accepted practices in the natural wine community; the reality is that if people in Europe didn’t spray copper or sulfur in their vineyards they wouldn’t have any grapes at all.
