Baptiste Cousin

The free spirit from Anjou

In the charming Loire ValleyBaptiste Cousin, together with his wife Gael, continues to carry on the long family’s tradition of producing natural and unique wines. Baptiste grew up in the vineyards and he learnt everything there is to know about viticulture from his father, the renowned vigneron Olivier. Animals help around the winery, whether there is a horse ploughing or sheep eating weed, there is always life in the vineyards. The wines are truly unique and special, the complexity of the red wines is out of this world. If you want to try something really fun try Marie Rose, a light macerated Grolleau Gris with smoky notes!
