Xavier Frissant’s family has been making wine in the Loire for over eight generations. In 1990, after completing oenological studies in Carcassonne, Languedoc, Bordeaux, and Val de Loire, XAVIER FRISSANT began to develop a passion for natural methods of farming. Since then, he and his wife ISABELLE, have transcended their passion for natural farming into their now 27-hectare domaine.
