For Serious Wine Geeks

Meet Thierry Germain. He grew up in a winemaking family in Bordeaux. Now he’s a terroir hero in the Loire Valley. On his quest to obtain what he calls "the beautiful plant," he developed an extraordinary understanding of his terroir and vines. Through biodynamic practices and his intuitive approach to viticulture, Thierry has become a reference for honest expressions of terroir in Saumur-Champigny wines. Venture to his domain, into the vines and his labyrinthine cellar dug out of the local Tuffeau limestone to learn more about his unique philosophy on viticulture and winemaking.
