Thierry Germain of Domaine des Roches Neuves comes from a long line of winemakers and is known the world over for being a leader in biodynamic wine production.
Originally from Bordeaux, he moved to the Loire Valley in the early 1990s where he was mentored by Charly Foucault of the incomparable Clos Rougeard. Their friendship ultimately resulted in converting Thierry Germain’s entire domaine to biodynamic viticulture. This biodynamic approach meant Thierry developed a deep passion for holistically listening to his vineyards, giving him an understanding of all the activity occurring from the soil to the fruit and everything in between. This is evident in every bottle of his wine produced.
