ABOUT MICHEL GUIGNIER
Vauxrenard - Beaujolais
Michel has just under 7 hectares of vines in the middle of a forest sandwiched between the appellations of Fleurie and Chiroubles. In an area that is predominantly a monoculture Michel’s farm and forest surroundings give him a lot more biodiversity. These natural surroundings coupled with his biodynamic agriculture ensure Michel’s vineyards are teeming with life. The soil quality is aided in no small amount by Michel’s small herd of Charolais cows – one of the primary sources of his compost. Working the way that he does, Michel is able to take full advantage of his terroirs which are predominantly decomposed granite and a little sandstone. Each of Michel’s wines is of singular purity and character.
