Grower: Jeremy Quastana
Region: Loire, France
Grape Varieties: Pinot Noir
We were introduced to Jeremy by our good friend Olivier Lemasson. Jeremy worked with Olivier for a few years and managed to grab a couple hectares of land not far from Olivier's main plot in the Loir et Cher, not far from Cheverny. Before that, Jeremy learned the trade at Marcel Lapierre's winery and did a six-month internship at Clos Ouvert in Chile. In four vintages, he has shown that he can make clean, highly drinkable wines with very little sulphur dioxide.
Jeremy is still a young vigneron and, in our opinion, he gets better every year. The vineyard is one plot composed of young vine Gamay, middle-aged Cot, and old vine Gamay on a gentle slope of clay over Silex.
