About the maker
Only a few years after completing a masters degree in international law, Valentin Morel decided to pursue winemaking having been inspired by his readings of biodynamic visionary Rudolph Steiner.
Valentin went on to study winemaking in Alsace, where he was introduced and influenced by natural winemakers like Pierre Frick and Bruno Schueller. Valentin’s grandfather ran a sawmill in Poligny and after retirement in 1978, he decided to plant 10 hectares of vineyards with his son Jean-Luc. in 1985 they began bottling their own wines. In1999 stopped using herbicide and began plowing all of the vineyards laying the path down for the conversion to biodynamic agriculture when Valentin joined the domaine and produced his first vintage in 2014. The wines are electric! They show off the Jura in the most pure form, with minimal intervention and biodynamic farming. Incredible.See the Domaine Morel collection here
