Naked Winemaker

Joost de Villebois



A labor of love...for a love lorn Dutchman!

Years Angel-funded: 2013-18

  • Joost knows how to preserve the heritage of the Loire region while catering to new world consumers.  
  • He started out in the '90s, producing 2 barrels a year in an old farmhouse... now, with Villebois, he highlights all the best parts of French whites, 24/7. And he passed the Angel torch to his lead winemaker, Patrice Grasset- who makes the Loire Valley wines you love today!
  • Winemaking's a real team effort, Joost says. He's so glad to have had you on part of his!
