Les Pieds Sur Terre

Les Pieds Sur Terre

Jura

Poligny

In 2014 Valentin Morel took over his family’s domaine just a few years after earning a masters degree in international law; he would prefer making wines inspired by his readings of Rudolph Steiner.

Valentin’s grandfather planted 10 ha in 1978 of vineyards with his son Jean-Luc. They sold off grapes to the local co-op, and in 1985 they began bottling their own wines. Jean-Luc had long involved with the local “Confederation Paysan”, and in 1999 stopped using herbicide and began ploughing all of the vineyards. This literally laid the groundwork for the conversion to biodynamic agriculture when Valentin joined the domaine and produced his first vintage in 2014. All of the wines are produced with natural yeast and homeopathic doses of sulfur – 1g during the crush, and 1-2g at bottling.

“Les pieds sur terre” translates firstly to a state of mind but is also understood as a tribute to our peer-pioneers of organics who, though often ridiculed, in reality chose this method of cultivation in a pragmatic and visionary way.

Finally, it is a reference to a radio show, which bears the same name and accompanies us daily in our vineyards.
