Since 2013, Anders Frederik Steen makes wine from “grapes and only grapes” in the beautiful village of Valvignères. The vineyards are full of life, having been tended organically for decades. His wines are made from red grapes which are either pressed directly or destemmed by hand and white grapes pressed directly in a beautiful old wooden press. Any blending is done during the harvest and the different varieties always ferment together, spontaneously, outside under the open sky. They are bottled unfiltered, with no additions and are thoughtful, original expressions of this part of the Ardèche.
