Meet the Winemaker

Thierry Germain was born into a winemaking family in Bordeaux. At 23, he found himself in the Loire Valley. Thierry treats his vines like human beings to get the best fruit. With his unique approach and mastery of the local terroirs, Thierry makes some of the liveliest wines in the region.
In the Vineyard & Cellar

For Thierry, biodynamics is a commitment to the vine, wine, people and the planet. He uses the technique of rolling up the vine instead of pruning, which supports the plant’s natural lifecycle and allows it to better breathe and develop. The balance between the vines and the soil enables earlier harvests. In the wine this means maturity before alcohol becomes too high and results in the preservation of minerality. Thierry works to limit intervention during winemaking and carefully chooses his aging vessels so the wines can fully express themselves.
