At first, Jean-Baptiste Menigoz was a primary school teacher. Wine is a hobby that he shared with his friend Raphaël Monnier (from Ratapoil Domaine). They run together a small vineyard at Arbois. So many years spent in the vine, making wine for their own consumption as well as for their family’s and friend’s ! 10 years learning, making mistakes and then getting into it for real ! Jean-Baptise made up his mind to become a winegrower !
Part time at first on top of his job, then one thing leading to another, full time in the village of Abergement-le-Petit, ouest of Arbois. Soon regarded as one of the best talents in Jura, and renowned for his extreme passion and perfectionism, Jean-Baptiste sets up basic philosophy on his ¾ hectares : winemaking process with no input and no manipulation. True, natural and pure wines ! All we like.
