Growing & Buying grapes

Domaine Mayoussier is a relatively new winery located in the Royans area, bordering the north of the Vercors mountain range in France. The area is interestingly situated between two great wine regions: the Northern Rhone area (Cornas, Tain-l’Hermitage, Saint-Joseph…) and the Savoie region (Combe de Savoie, Gresivaudan valley, the Chartreuse…).

The Domaine is a family business, run by Antoine Depierre who is taking care of both the vineyard and the cellar, on its family old property, a farm and castle whose first stones date from the 13th century. Antoine Depierre started the Domaine in 2012 after a first career working as sommelier and restaurant manager in London, Berlin, Miami and Dubai(!).The Domaine produces today seven wines, four of which are actually produced in partnership with a grower located further south in the Drome department. The three others are from fruits from the Domaine. The Domaine is indeed still farming a rather limited surface of almost three hectares, which would not be enough for the project to be economically viable. Even if small, it offers a variety of soil of clayey-limestone, alluvials and galets-roulés.

The philosophy of Antoine Depierre is very much to respect nature, hence to not use machines but horses to work the soils, to follow organic practices, naturally banning pesticides and working by hand. The philosophy is also one of freedom and transparency, but not of standards or labels, hence not looking after any sort of certification and not caring too much for the long list of requirements from the appellations and other institutions

We decided to focus our attention on the wines which came from the domain for now. They feel more complex and personal, maybe because of the terroir. The other wines are still very good, no doubt about it, maybe simply less representative of the personality of the Domaine.

100% artisans vignerons

Nous sommes dédiés et engagés à supporter les vins d'artisans vignerons. Des vins vrais, produits par de vrais artisans, de la nouvelle génération de vins naturels aux classiques bourguignons les plus traditionnels. Désolé, pas de vin industriel ici.

Vendre le vin est un art, tout autant que le faire

Vendre le vin est un art, tout autant que le faire

Nous ne sommes pas un site Direct-to-Consumer de plus. Nous ne vendons pas aux particuliers mais équipons les vendeurs, sommeliers et cavistes d'outils efficaces pour qu'ils puissent se concentrer sur leur art.

Aussi liquide que le vin

Aussi liquide que le vin

Nous pensons que le commerce devrait être aussi liquide que le vin. Processus, transactions et informations devraient circuler comme un bon vin dans un verre Zalto. C'est là qu'une plate-forme digitale peut aider.

Les Vignerons d'abord

Les Vignerons d'abord

Pour un marché efficace et viable, il faut commencer par se préoccuper des producteurs. Ceci ne peut arriver qu'en étant équitable et transparent pour ceux-ci d'abord, et ensuite pour tous les acteurs apportant de la valeur.
