'T’as Poussé le Bouchon Trop Loin' 2019


Lori Haon is a young, talented winemaker who farms around 15 hectares on the Domaine du Petit Oratoire in Valliguières, not far from Avignon, since 2015. 

Lori was looking for a small vineyard to get into winemaking. He would be the first in his family to do so. His dad then found the 15ha estate on Ebay, which was already organically certified. The offer was at a very good price so he decided to buy it for him, saying he could pay him back later. Lori wasn't expecting to take over 15ha right at the beginning but was happy rise to the challenge. With the help of Thierry Forestier he achieved really good results with his first vintage and it all went from there.

Lori is organically certified and practices biodynamic principles in the vineyard.
