Domaine des Roches Neuves

Winery Star

Wine Leaders' Choice

Varrains, France

Domaine des Roches Neuves has been using biodynamic methods to produce its wines since 2004. Thierry Germain fine-tuned the winery’s biodynamics to fully integrate the method and adapt it to his terroir, beliefs, and profound feelings.

Implemented with common sense and a positive intention, biodynamics completely and naturally matches the Domaine des Roches Neuves philosophy. The biodynamic approach consists of understanding the plant, reading nature, and guiding, assisting, and respecting it to the greatest extent possible, thus fostering soil life.

This is expressed by rolling grapevines, a continuous focus to achieve natural biodiversity rather than induced and the partial use of animal traction.

Domaine des Roches Neuves seeks to balance the environment, nature, and the global relationship between people, vegetation, and animals. Balance is also a factor when finding the perfect symbiosis between each plot’s terroir and its grapevines. Constantly striving for balance to determine the right maturity of grape skin that will preserve the vines’ natural minerality and tensions.
