‘One terroir, one grape variety, one vinegrower-winemaker. The land, the sun, an alchemist.’
Set in the commune of Villié Morgon, in the heart of the Beaujolais Cru vineyards, Michel-Guignier – Les Améthystes brings you healthy, natural and authentic wines whose personality will captivate you, including Morgon, Brouilly, Chiroubles, Beaujolais, Saint-Amour, Fleurie, Moulin à Vent and Macon Villages…
I tend my vines organically, by choice and personal conviction. My aim is to bring you natural, chemical-free wines. To this end and taking Biodynamics as my inspiration, I learned to connect with and forged a heightened sensitivity to nature’s rhythm for the both vines and wine, reawakening the dignity and worth of my craft.
Tending methods I use include tilling, ploughing, planting sodded bands and composting. In addition to safeguarding the environment and the consumer, these age-old organic methods generate unique, living wine that is the expression of living earth.
Excessive alcohol use is a health risk.
