We caught up with Laure Colombo, the next generation of winemaker in the Jean-Luc Colombo wines legacy. Her vigorous confidence in what she and her wines stand for make this an engaging and informative interview. 

 

Laure has grown up amongst the rich landscape of the Rhone valley in a location that straddles the climates of continental France and the Midi. She has the great energy and confidence of someone who knows what she is talking about, simply because she lives it.

Taking nothing for granted, Laure is investing her energy in growing vines at a higher altitude in Saint Pérey. Here, wine production is integrated with a myriad of other living plants and organisms to create harmony and balance using the techniques of permaculture. Her objective is create an enlarged system of life that will produce food, a home for bees (and many other creatures), as well as beautiful wine.
