    About Eric Texier

    Rhône, France

    I became a vigneron, in the almost forgotten vineyard area of Brézème (Northern Rhone). My goals and methodology were born through reading, visits to traditional winemakers and sustainable farms around the world. My winemaking is very old school and very minimalist and my main concern as a vigneron is the soil.
