Originally from the Jura, Mathieu Apffel has been producing wine in Savoie since 2013. He began making small amounts of Apremont with a friend before striking out on his own in 2017. That year, he was able to acquire land and a cellar from a retiring vigneron and produce a first vintage under his name, from vineyards set below the Massif de Chartreuse. Matthieu is converting the estate to organic viticulture and also uses biodyniamic practices. Work in the cellar is minimally interventionist, with native fermentations, no filtration, and little to no use of sulfur.
