Etienne Seignovert in Saint-Barthélémy-le-Plain (07)
The Etienne Seignovert estate was born at the beginning of 2020, and is built around vines taken over on lease, new plantations and a small business between friends who are also young winemakers.
The aim of the estate is to recreate an old-fashioned Ardèche farm by combining polyculture and agroforestry to maximise the symbiosis between fauna and flora and hope to recover a natural balance in terms of biodiversity.
The vineyard is located only on the Northern exhibitions of the Doux valleyThe vineyards are located at an altitude of between 400 and 500 metres. The aim, through the influence of the plateaus and these less sunny exposures, is to produce wines aerialon the freshness and the finesse.
For the cultivation of vines, the objective is toengage the most biodiversity possible in order to find a natural balancewhere fauna and flora work together.
Once manually harvested the grapes arrive in the cellar in small 18kg boxes, from then on, all the manipulations carried out on the grapes, the must and the wines will aim to reflect the terroir where the grapes are grown.
The guiding principle behind the cellar choices is to obtain airy wines that convey the expression of their parcels. Nothing but grapesand low doses of So2 depending on the wines and conditions. All wines are not glued not filtered.
Les étiquettes ont leur petite histoire elles aussi ! Etienne voulait retransmettre dans ses étiquettes sa passion pour l’univers fantastique et l’animation japonaise. Il a alors rencontré Marc et Norent, deux artistes et après 1 semaine passée à la ferme pour s’imprégner des vins, de l’univers d’Etienne et de l’énergie du lieu alliant dégustation, balade en Ardèche et spécialités locales, ils ont créés ensemble ces jolies étiquettes.
