Joly Nicolas

Joly Nicolas The French cult winemaker Nicolas Joly (*1945) is the owner of the Château de la Roche-aux-Moines in the Loire region. He is an uncompromising advocate of biodynamic viticulture and founded the winemakers' association La Renaissance des Appellations in 2001. A quotation from him:

Like music, the quality of a wine consists of three components. First the instrument, the vineyard. Then the musician, the winemaker. And finally the acoustics in viticulture, the resonance - the connection with the archetypal forces of vine and vineyard. In Biodynamic viticulture this resonance is amplified immensely.
