About: Lori Haon is a young, talented winemaker who farms 19 hectares in Valliguieres, not far from Avignon. In 2015 Lori was looking for a small vineyard to get into winemaking. Hoping for a manageable 3 hectares, his dad by chance found a 15 hectare estate for sale on listings site Le Bon Coin and decided to bid on it immediately for Lori, saying he could pay him back later. Lori fell in love with natural wine whilst studying oenology in Alsace, and has been working organically since 2015. He's been in biodynamic conversion for the last few years, and for the 2021 vintage he hopes to have achieved certification.
This light red is a blend of red and white grapes, all macerated together as whole bunches. A dark pink, with ripe red fruit flavors, enjoy lightly chilled!
