Domaine Olga Raffault - (France)
Located between the Loire and the Vienne, the vineyards of Olga Raffault are situated. Olga was running the family domain together with her husband when her husband died suddenly in the fantastic 1947 vintage. With the help of Ernest Zeinninger, a German soldier who was taken prisoner of war at the end of the war but who was released under the protection of the Raffault family, a top wine was finally realized that year. Having never understood the war, he later bonded with the domain and the Raffault family, resulting in a close friendship that would last. Later her son took over the domain and today it is granddaughter Sylvie Raffault who, with her husband and son, honors the legacy of Olga. The necessary modernizations and new techniques were implemented, but the style and character that Olga had in mind were retained. The wine and vineyards are fully organically labeled and are made and maintained with the greatest care and respect for the environment and climate.
