AGNES & JACQUES CARROGET, DOMAINE DE LA PAONNERIE
Jacques & Agnes Carroget have been producing wine in La Paonnerie, near the town of Ancenis in the Loire Valley for over 20 years. They’ve been organic since the start and these days mostly eschew the use of sulphur - aside from a little at bottling for wines going abroad. They put incredible work into the vineyards, utilising biodynamic methods to create healthy, vibrant quality fruit. They’re helped by a couple of Kune-Kune pigs who roam their vineyards eating the weeds and turning the soil along with a few friendly sheep. They vinify with natural yeasts and do not fine or filter their wines - the wines are as full of life as they are.
We feel privileged to be the first to bring these great wines into the UK
