The story of Jean Cristophe Garnier is one to be told. And it is not too different from that of many of his colleagues who become winemakers in pursuit of a dream. Originally from Brittany, Jean Cristophe worked for a decade as a sommelier in some of France's finest restaurants and over the years developed an ever-deepening love of natural wine.
So he decided to study oenology and gain experience as an intern in a number of French companies, including that of his mentor, MarK Angeli.
He then settled in Anjou where he bought two hectares of Chenin, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc and an old wine press.
His wines are unmasked, clean, with a slight oxidative note and exude passion beyond the glass that contains them, the same passion that has made them famous throughout France.
In the vineyard, Jean Cristophe has a non-interventionist philosophy. In the cellar, he uses autochthonous yeasts to stimulate spontaneous alcoholic fermentation. He uses no additives, does not filter or clarify.
