Alex Foillard


Domaine Alex Foillard, Beaujolais
Alex Foillard knew from a young age that wine was his passion, growing up in a family famous for its extraordinary, natural wines. Following his graduation from wine school, he returned to his family’s domaine in the search for his own patch of vines. Purchasing his own vineyard at only twenty-four years old, he immediately began working according to organic principles, following similar methods to his father, Jean Foillard.
