French Catalan Raymond Manchon’s family have been making wine in the Agly Valley for six generations. Raymond’s winemaking formula is very simple. With a total of 18 hectares, he sells the lion’s share of his grapes to the local organic co-operative. His very oldest plots, with ancient vines (between 80 and 110 years old), plots that have become economically ‘unviable’, he keeps for his own production. Raymond chuckles at this, how these are the best grapes from his entire estate, yet the co-op only pay by the kilo so these very low-yielding vines are the ones Raymond selects for his miniscule production of roughly 2,000 bottles annually
