Baptiste Nayrand

Coteaux Lyonnais, France

Baptiste Nayrand organically farms just a few hectares of vines in the Coteaux Lyonnais, a rather sparsely planted region between Beaujolais and the Rhone. A self-taught winemaker, Baptiste works with pinot noir, gamay, and chardonnay, planted on rugged, granitic and mineral-rich soils. In the cellar, wines are raised in fibreglass tanks and eschew additions of any kind.
