About the Crozier's and La Vrille et le Papillon
Meryl and Géraldine Crozier started La Vrille et le Papillon in 2012 and now have 5 hectares of Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Viognier, Grenache and Ugni Blanc tended in organic agriculture. As is often the case, they both grew up withe family who are vignerons (farmers) here in the northern area of the Rhone are the roots of this young couple. Choosing to return to the family tradition of wine growing and making, Meryl and Geraldine are taking the natural approach!
All vines are farmed without herbicides or pesticides (since the first plantings) and they use biodynamic preparations in both the vineyard and in the cellar (winery). All vinifications are natural with only wild yeasts and little or no sulfur added. All the wines are bottled without fining or filtration.
