La Nouvelle donne

Wilfried Walt, a former student in biochemistry in Montpellier and in oenology in Dijon, started his domaine in 2007. He bought 5 hectares of old vines about to be uprooted near Calce, at the Done pass (Col de la Done). His farming is organic, respectful of the environment. His winemaking is modern, with cold pre-fermentation maceration and soft extraction. Wilfried is implementing in Roussillon, to local grapes (Carignan, Mourvedre), what he has learnt in Burgundy while working at Meo-Camuzet and Joblot. The results are fresh, delicate and elegant wines.
