Social



David Large is the great-grandson, grandson and son of winemakers - that is, his family has been making wine since the 1840s. 

The History

Though David is a classically trained winemaker, he views winemaking as a process of 'unlearning'. His vineyards are located in pockets around Montmelas, a beautiful and mountainous area of the Southwest Beaujolais.


 The soil types of David's wines are predominantly granite, clay and the “Pierres Dorées”, a local and unique limestone formation pigmented with iron oxide. His wines also benefit from a volcanic rock base uniquely suited to Gamay vines.

The Philosophy

Having formerly worked for Michael Chapoutier, his vineyard management and wine-making are artisan and natural (native yeasts are used with only very minimal use of sulfites at bottling, and none in the vineyards). Everything is done by hand, from picking to racking. David has a hand in every step of the process, from working his vineyards, managing the vinification, and even making his own deliveries.
