Isabelle Garrault

Sancerre, Loire Valley

The Garrault family have been growing grapes in Sancerre for ten generations and are fortunate to be located in the village of Verdigny, an ideal terroir for sauvignon blanc.

Isabelle Garrault in the VineyardsIsabelle Garrault in the Vineyards

Isabelle Garrault sustainably farms these steep high-altitude vineyards which average 200-400 meters above sea level, hand-harvesting all grapes with vinification in steel tanks.

The wines are fresh and zippy with an intense minerality due to the limestone soils of the Terres Blanches and Caillotes.
