Philippe Pibarot resides and makes wine on the outskirts of the village of Mus, a couple of miles south of Nîmes in the northern part of Languedoc. Philippe’s first vintage was in 2001, and today he cultivates nine hectares of vineyard with the help of his father. Philippe became a guru for young winemakers starting to convert to organic and biodynamic viticulture. The wines are made to be natural and accessible: delicious juice. He harvests only the most perfect bunches to make his flawless and outstanding cuvées.
