Lessons from Montirius a Biodynamic Winemaker in France

I take notes like a squirrel on the bird feeder – fast and full, getting it all down before someone changes the subject. You’ll know me by my notebooks.

…Continue reading here for Jill’s account of their visit to this fifth-generation vineyard near Gigondas in Provence. The vineyard is Montirius a play on the names of the owner’s three children MON (Manon) – TI (Justine) – RIUS (Marius). The wines from this estate are biodynamic, organic, vegan and gluten-free. It sounds like you can drink guilt-free! Enjoy Jill’s detailed post about this beautiful vineyard in the Vaucluse.

Jill Barth

Jill is a writer whose characters make wine, love wine, and live wine. Research for her forthcoming novel–the story of a Provençal winemaking family during the Second World War–has afforded her glorious pleasures: meetings with ambitious French vignerons, travel up and down France in bouncy Renaults, overnights in shuttered châteaux, and many hours as a student of wine with a glass to her lips. In this role, she not only enjoys her own relationship with wine but she also indulges in the life of the French winemaking family that inhabits the pages of her novel.

Jill writes about wine, travel and occasionally yoga (she’s a certified yoga instructor). Her fiction has been featured on NPR and has been published in several literary journals.

Her writings can also be found on her blog L’Occasion.
