On a sunny day this April, we made our way to the château of winemaker, Nicolas Joly*, in France’s Loire Valley.  What transpired was the greatest navigational nightmare I’ve ever fallen prey to.  After hours of being squawked at by a maniacal GPS device, we finally rolled up to his estate…this video documents our day with him.

*For reference sake, Nicolas Joly is at the forefront of Biodynamic winemaking.  His writings, lectures and practices have sent shock waves through the industry.  (For more info, check out the article I wrote for Palate Press on him and the Biodynamic movment: HERE).
