Jean-Christophe Garnier was a young sommelier in the Rhone when he fell in love with the wines from the tiny village of Saint Lambert du Lattay, in the Anjou region of the Loire Valley. These extraordinary wines just happened to be made with minimum intervention, and he decided to follow suit. Garnier grows his grapes organically, and utilizes natural yeasts, minimal filtration, and little to no sulfur in the production of his wines. We're so thrilled to finally introduce this iconic winemaker to SG wine lovers and hope you will like the wines as much as we do!
