Hélène Thibon


Mas de Libian, Rhône Valley

Hélène Thibon is the winemaker of Mas de Libian, an organic estate set on a rocky plateau in the Ardèche region in 1970 by her parents. She is farming 25 hectares, all on very different soils. Following the model where the estate's viniculture is a self-sustaining environment, the wines reflect all the natural wealth and charm of this region. Just saying, Nestor, the family horse, still works the vineyards.
