Aubai Mema Lunatico - Gard
France - Languedoc
REGION: Gard, Languedoc, France
Mark Haynes is the half-English, half-French vigneron behind this wonderfully old-fashioned yet modern winery. Having spent time in the region with his French mother in his youth, he came to buy 10 hectares of vines in the Aubais region in 2002 and set about learning about and then producing precociously good wines. “Lunatique” in French refers to going mad due to the moon (Lune), which Mark ﬁnds apt: he uses the lunar calendar to grow his grapes, and is going mad in the process!
