Sebastien Bobinet - Poil de Lievre Chenin (2019)

Sebastien Bobinet - Poil de Lievre Chenin (2019)

Chenin Blanc for the Loire Valley.

Sebastien grew up in and around wine. From the age of 7, he was helping his grandfather in the vineyard and cellar. Later, as a young adult, he worked in a wine lab.

He then spent some time in the world of glass- making and it wasn’t until his early thirties that he came back to take over the family business. As the eighth generation of a family of winemakers, Sebastien had some stubbornness to contend with in order to introduce his way of doing things.

But eventually his hard work and determination won the family’s approval. For a while he was happy tending his two hectares of vines but on turning 40, the desire to grow and diversify took hold of him. Meeting Emeline had also given him the strength and drive to undertake the new venture he’d been dreaming of.
