Noëlla Morantin decided to plunge into a new career at the age of 28. Dropping everything, she enrolled in a viticulture and oenology programme, which soon led to a series of internships with such quality names as Agnès and René Mosse in Anjou, and Philippe Pacalet in Burgundy… Her growing CV would impress Junko Araï, a Japanese importer who also owned vines in France happened to be looking for someone to care for them. And so it was that in 2004, these two women embarked on an adventure together. Despite limited means, they’d had immediate commercial success in Japan and in France. By 2008, Noëlla spread her wings and soon found herself at the head of a 12-ha estate. Needless to say, Noëlla makes natural wines, and is best known for her Sauvignon of remarkable quality and unparalleled value. But in fact, her entire range offers a maximum of emotions. All of which has made her the darling of many top sommeliers, who today serve her wines in the world’s finest restaurants.
