From the Importer Jeffrey Alpert Selections:
After working as a farm worker for a decade, Elise Hamant decided to take over the 4 hectares of vines in the small commune of Aizenay in the Loire. The plots fascinatingly date back over one hundred years, when hybrids were once planted. The domaine has been certified organic since 2012. Elise currently works with Cabernet Franc, Gamay, Grolleau Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon for her red wines; for her whites, she works with Grolleau Gris, as well as Chardonnay. She brings in sheep in the winter to connect plant and animal life, uses nettle to activate her soils, and follows the lunar calendar.
