Additional Information

The grapes are sourced from 3 different vineyards. The main source is in Moulin au Vent, a parcel of 65-year-old vines, planted on pink granite. The vineyard is a total of 1.6 hectares, which is farmed organically, with legal organic certification expected this year (in 2021).

A second vineyard in Brouilly provides 30% of the grapes. It is a south facing vineyard that has deep clay soils rich in limestone. A great contrast to the pink granite of the Moulin au Vent vineyard. The Moulin au Vent and Brouilly vineyards are farmed by Julian Betrand.

The last vineyard is owned and farmed by Patrick and Justine. The grapes are planted on granite rich soils laced with quartz.

The wine making is simple; whole cluster fermentation, aged in a combination of clay amphorae and used oak barrels with no fining, no filtering and no added SO2 at any phase of winemaking. Our Gamay MVB was bottled in May 2021 according to the biodynamic calendar. The harvesting, wine making, and elevage was done by Patrick Bouju and Justine Loiseau. ABV is 13%.
Vivanterre is a natural wine produced in the Auvergne region of France by Patrick Bouju and Justine Loiseau, and founded by Rosie and Max Assoulin, with the support of renowned sommelier Cedric Nicaise. Using organically and biodynamically farmed grapes, vinified using natural processes, and untouched by any fining, filtering, or added sulfites, Vivanterre reflects the “Living Earth” from which it comes. Introduced by mutual friends, the Vivanterre team came together with the intention to create a delicious natural wine using sustainable practices. The collaborative spans the creative worlds, with a mix of wine experts and novices, who came together to create a wine that is truly a product of shared perspectives. We hope you enjoy Vivanterre as much as we do.
