Philippe Garrey’s is the 6th generation to live on and care for his family’s Estate in the southern end of the Mercurey appellation. Philippe farms his entire property of old vines (60-100 years old) by himself. In the vineyard, no chemicals of any kind are used and the rows are grassed over. Only natural fertilizers (green manure) and treatments of the vines (infusions of nettle, chamomile, etc) are used. Vibrant stunning fruit.
