You’ll find the word ‘funambule’(tightrope walker) often used by Les Sablonnettes. This is because high-quality natural wine-making is a very fine balancing act. Like the tight-rope walker’s balancing pole, or the water diviner’s divining rod, Les Sablonnettes have a sensible grasp of their guiding instrument: the robust vine branch that determines each step and of the wine-making process. Rigorous and passionate, Chris and Jo are meticulous in their practice of biodynamic methods, remaining constantly attuned to the natural variations of the harvest each year - always with stunning results.
