Elmwood: Xavier Weisskopf – Le Rocher des Violettes – Loire Wine

Xavier Weisskopf founded Le Rocher des Violettes in 2005 after studying winemaking in Chablis and Beaune and earning his degree in viticulture and oenology. He went to work for Lous Barruol at famed Gigondas producer Chateau de Saint Cosme and rose to the rank of chef du cave, making 4 vintages during his tenure. His love for Chenin Blanc drew him to Montlouis, where he acquired 9 hectares of old vines and immediately converted the farming to certified organics, with the aim to allow these precious old vines to speak without obfuscation.
