Andrea, who is from the Czech Republic, explored France in the 1980’s for a brief period before
finally settling and finding wine. His vineyards are located just outside of the town of
Valvignères in the Ardèche. All of the work in the vineyards is done organically and all the
fruit is hand harvested. The wines are naturally fermented and undergo some carbonic masceration. No additions are made at any point and the wines are bottled without sulphur. These
wines are wonderful expressions of the wildness of Ardèche.
