Sebastien Congretel L’Epicurieux

WHO WE ARE

Sébastien and Charlotte Congretel named their 2.5 ha. Domaine L’Epicurieux after the Greek philosopher Epicurus, who taught that the object of life is balanced pleasure derived from tranquility and harmony.  Not surprisingly, this is a very apt description for their balanced and highly pleasurable Beaujolais.

After a career working on oil rigs, Sebastien decided in 2015 to become a vigneron in Beaujolais, where Charlotte’s family make wine.  The couple acquired some parcels in Morgon and Régnié and made their first vintage in 2016.

>As befits a couple that adopted a Greek philosopher’s name, Sebastien and Charlotte follow a very thoughtful and principled approach to their viticulture. They adhere strictly to organic standards and are moving toward biodynamic certification.  Even now, their Cru Beaujolais wines most assuredly qualify as “natural”.
