Banyuls local Thierry Diaz has been tending to his 4 hectares of old indigenous vines on the precipitously steep Banyuls slopes since 2000. First and foremost a viticultor, it wasn’t until 2012 when some winemaker friends invited him to set up Les 9 Caves together and Thierry found himself with a small space to make wine of his own. Refusing formal winemaking training entirely, Thierry firmly believes that good wine is made in the vineyard, not the cellar, and it is for this reason that Thierry practices a simple and intuitive winemaking style. Pure fermented grape juice from old organically farmed vines, with nothing added. Each wine is from a single plot and a perfect representation of that parcel’s singular terroirs.

Bang Bang is 40 y/o bush vine Muscat from clay-calcareous soil a little inland from Banyuls. Direct pressed and fermented and aged in stainless steel around 7 months before bottling.
