Iconic French wines without any pretense
- This third generation French winemaker who made some of the best-rated wines on the site while working at the Villebois winery, the home of our best-selling French wines.
- Since he was a little boy working alongside his grandfather, Patrice dreamed of making his own wines from the 160 million year old soils of his home town, and Angels made that dream come true.
- For unpretentious French wines that capture the uniqueness of the most famous terroir in the world, look no further than Patrice.
Growing up in a winemaker’s family in a small village called La Varenne, near the Atlantic coast, surrounded by famous grapes. My love for winemaking was passed on through my grandfather and father. Since I was a little boy, I yearned to be a passionate winemaker like them.
I graduated from the famous Faculté d’Oenologie de Montpellier in the Languedoc-Rousillon to broaden and deepen my wine knowledge and winemaking skills. During my time in the South of France, I visited many different wine regions to ultimately understand the authentic characteristics of each unique terroir and became passionate about red wine making, too.
I have been lucky to work with the amazing and dedicated team at Villebois winery for many years. We've worked closely together to get the best understanding of the terroir and make the best viticultural and grape picking choices - and now they've passed the nakedwines.com torch to me!
