Antoine Joly and Laurence Joly
Located northeast of Vaison-La-Romaine in the southern Côtes du Rhône, Antoine and Laurence Joly work 18 hectares of organic vineyards making some of our favorite wines in the region. They maintain a freshness and lightness in their wines by dedicating themselves to very intense vineyard work that allows them to harvest earlier than several other producers in their area, resulting in less concentrated and lower alcohol wines.
