A young and talented winemaker from the South West of France, where he has his very small cellar in the town of Moulin Neuf. Like many young winemakers and wine-enthusiasts, they make their bones in various small and large cellars and with approaches to agriculture of various kinds; but like on many occasions, the shock that comes with the first sip of a natural wine awakened in him emotions never felt before.
Jean-Louis Pinto worked for years alongside Antony Tortul of La Sorga and like him has made a name for himself - micro-negotiant par excellence. He uses 8 selected micro parcels in the best terroirs, ranging from the surroundings of Gaillac to St Chinian, Malepère, Ariège and Corbières. Each year the grapes of each area are vinified separately and each cuvée responds and faithfully tells the characteristics of the vintage of each particular area. In 2020 Jean-Louis has bought a piece of land and has planted 1h of vines.
