Boutin

J. Boutin

Stéphane Vedeau is an expert wine maker and vigneron. After making wine in the Languedoc for years, he came back to his roots and moved to the Rhône in 2000. He owns three different wineries - Ferme du Mont in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Bellane in Valreas, and his Northern Rhône wines are bottled under his mother’s name Jeannine Boutin. In meeting Stéphane, you can instantly tell that he is a perfectionist, which for him (in terms of winemaking) means a true expression of the terroir. To accomplish this, work in the vineyards is organic, grapes are hand-harvested, wild yeasts start fermentation, the cellar is gravity fed, aging happens in a mix of stainless steel and larger oak barrels, and wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered.
