🤓 Geek Out: Etienne Bodet has been immersed in the wine culture of the Loire Valley's Saumur region since a young kid. Eventually he would go off to Champagne to get his National Diploma of Oenology from the University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne.
As if university was not enough, Etienne continued his pursuit of knowledge to perfect his craft with apprenticeships in...
-Burgundy under Sylvain Pataille
-the Loire at Domaine Guiberteau, Domaine Bernard Baudry, & Clos Rougeard
-Champagne under Pierre Gerbais
After fortifying his love for tasting, geology, soil, and general viticulture, Etienne and his wife, Kimberly, started the Bodet-Herold label. They specialize in Cremant de Loire highlighting the chalky soils of Saumur. The duo believes in long ageing, organics, and risk taking.
