ABOUT THIS PRODUCER

On the southern banks of the Loire River in the appellation of Cheverny, Philippe Tessier farms 23 hectares of vines utilizing organic principles. Perhaps more importantly, however, Philippe strives to make honest wines that respect the natural balance of his vines and the local ecosystem of the Loire Valley. He harvests by hand, utilizes neutral oak and native yeast and nominally filters. His overriding goal is for his wines to reflect not the hand of the winemaker, but rather the original character of the vine, soil and vintage.
