Sébastien Bobinet & Emeline Calvez


Domaine Bobinet, Loire Valley
Sébastien Bobinet inherited two hectares of old-vines estate in 2003, that he has since expanded to a 7-hectare-vinyard. Native of Saumur, he is from a winegrower' family, who  has organically worked this tuffeau-limestone-clay soil for generations. Since 2011, he is farming the estate with his partner Emeline Calvez, a former dancer trained sommelier.
"We simply want to work following an ethic we hold dear, the pillars of which are: health, ecology, enjoyment, quality, humanity, sustainability." - Sébastien Bobinet
