La Dernière Goutte

Cyrille Vuillod's journey into winemaking is marked by a passion for wine and a desire for a career change from his previous role as a ski instructor in the Hautes-Alpes region of the South of France. Captivated by the world of wine, Cyrille made the bold decision to transition into winemaking, drawn by his deep enjoyment of the craft.

Initially gaining experience by participating in grape picking in the Beaujolais area, Cyrille eventually took the leap to purchase vineyards and a house on the outskirts of Brouilly, marking the beginning of his winemaking venture. Prior to venturing out on his own, Cyrille dedicated three years to an internship under the tutelage of Jean-Claude Lapalu, a respected winemaker. In 2012, Cyrille produced his inaugural vintage in his newly established cellar.

Focusing exclusively on Gamay grapes grown in his vineyards, Cyrille also sources Riesling and Chardonnay from friends in other regions of France. His winemaking practices emphasise traditional techniques, utilising basket presses and employing fully carbonic maceration for an extended duration. Notably, none of Cyrille's wines contain added sulfites.
