Welcome to Lou Vin
Lou Vin means "the wine" in the patois of that area in the western alps where Piedmont, Savoy, Aosta Valley, Burgundy, Provence, and Champagne meet. As we travel the road from Turin to Reims, with a little detour to Austria and Germany, we introduce you to the winemakers we love: the passionate artisans and crafters of their terroir.
This is our heritage, and the original hub of modern winemaking, which started a millenium ago.
