Domaine Dard et Ribo
René Jean Dard and François Ribo are key members of a new generation of French winemakers who have acquired a cult following among those who seek out the world’s most exciting natural wines. Their wines are stocked by all the coolest wine bars throughout their native country, as well as having a loyal fan base in Japan, which is fast becoming a key market in the natural wine scene. The Dard et Ribo duo control 7.5 hectares of vineyards, comprising a variety of Crozes-Hermitage terroirs and an interesting combination of soil types, which they farm organically. And the philosophy of the pair is very straightforward. According to François, 'what we like is natural wine because it’s alive, wine that does not necessarily have to be kept – just drunk and drunk again' – an ideology that we certainly agree with.
