About the producer: The tiny Domaine Gigondan is one of only two vineyards in France to collect, demineralise and recycle natural rainwater in the homeopathic preparations they use to treat the vines. Bruno and his wife Nanda believe in 'Wild Viticulture' where vines are left unpruned and to go their own sweet way. Every grape is hand selected and hand picked then reselected on sorting tables to make sure that only the very ripest and best go into the wine. These growers do what they do with such heart and grace - and they need our support as much as we need wines like these.
