Elodie Aubert moved back to the Drome in 2007 to take over her family's estate. Her father, a pioneer of low intervention farming beginning in the 90s, inspired her to take his hands-off approach one step further -- into the cellar. Now the wines are made without inputs both in the vineyard and during vinification.

The vines are on a mix of soils, including clay-limestone, and were planted by her grandparents in the 1950s. In line with her desire to take the family's vineyard to the next level, she acquired sheep, donkeys, ducks, chickens and dogs for both weed maintenance and natural manure, playing their part in her ever evolving eco-system. In the cellar, wines are made in concrete vats, and this vintage none of the wines have any sulfur additions.

This red/white blend drinks typically of wines from the area. Drome is know as the gateway to Provence, filled with orchards, olive groves, and lavender fields. This wine undoubtedly translates some of these characteristics into the bottle. Plenty of spicy red fruits, light florals, and a savory finish.
