We're talking to you about his Winery
|Luc Bauer: a name that means Peasant in the language of Goethe, that is to say if this name predestined him for this noble profession of Agriculture! After earth-oriented studies, Agricultural Engineer at ISARA Lyon in 2005 and Technician in Viticulture-Oenology at Davayé in 2009, Luc Bauer will be studying with various winemakers such as the Bret Brothers in Vinzelles, at Winery Philippe Jambon, Beaujolais, and in Canada. And already natural orientations towards the respect of the vine, the wine and the consumers. To date, he works in Biodynamic vineyards at the foot of the Roche de Narse, but with less than 2ha, he cannot support himself and continues to work at the Association des Producteurs Bio du Rhône et de la Loire which aims to help the transition to organic agriculture/viticulture with Jacques Néauport, a pupil and disciple of Jules Chauvet, as a speaker. A great winemaker, taster and therefore a man of good advice. Luc Bauer, at his side, takes full advantage of all his know-how, his experience and, he says himself, his 'intuition'.||So how can we not have these few principles as guidelines: - respect for the environment, water quality, air quality, - respect for the health of the people who make wine and those who drink it - produce authentic, 'vibrant' wines, specific to their terroir of origin and pleasant to drink, quite simply! Without forgetting this human aspect which consists in wanting to rehabilitate a true cultural heritage: the Argis hillside - 100 ha of vines dating from 1900 - and thus re-dynamize a region that is becoming desertified, thanks to an innovative and original activity. Fallen under the spell of Luc Bauer, of his work and even more so of the tasting of his wines from the last 2 vintages that he presented to us. Long live the Grangeons de l'Albarine, and long live Natural Wine!|
