Love & Grapes

Love & Grapes is the on-going project of winemaker Fred Niger of Domaine de l’Ecu. Expanding beyond the Loire Valley, he has established partnerships with like-minded vignerons across France and Italy. Each cuvée is a close collaboration with a different winemaker who is similarly driven by respect for nature in the vineyard and the cellar. Although the wines come from a diversity of terroirs, they all share the same features of stunning purity of fruit, poise and precision. Watch this space for new collaborations arriving soon!
