Alain Allier makes his wine in a small garage close to the Mouriseppe mountains, the very same which used to be a vital look out for the Romans; they probably even planted the vines. The vineyard covers 9 ha in total of Syrah, Grenache Noir, Cinsault, Chardonnay and Chasselas on a limestone base with clay and blue marl. Alain only vinifies the fruit from 4 ha himself, offering the rest to the local coop. Alain's philosophy is simple: the more you do in the vineyard to create healthy, balanced fruit, the less you need to do in the winery. All grapes are picked and destemmed by hand.
