About Guy Farge:
Selling his grapes to a wine cooperative since 1978, Guy Farge decided in 2007 to build his own winery to be able to express the exceptional terroirs his ancestors gave him in the appellation of St Joseph. Farming grapes has been in the Farge family for 3 generations! Their approach is traditional; and in order to preserve terroir’s richness, most of the viticultural practices are done with horses and the only fertilizer used comes from sheep manure. Guy’s philosophy is to be as close to nature as possible. Only indigenous yeasts are used with selected stems that provide tipicity to the wines. Guy Farge only grows the genuine grape varieties of his region, Syrah, Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier.
