Francois Chidaine

Francois Chidaine is based in Montlouis, but has wonderful holdings just across the Loire in Vouvray as well. He is known in France and much of the larger wine world as an incredibly talented and focused farmer and has been practicing organic and biodynamic for many years, and more recently has begun adopting an approach known as “regenerative agriculture”. This practice eschews any tilling and instead grows cover crops of indigenous plants in natural rotation throughout the year . . . promoting biodiversity and helping remove CO2 from the atmosphere.
