Le Puy is one of the estates not only known for its subculture in the natural wine underground, but also for its reputation in the mainstream wine world. This is due, among other things, to the fact that the Amoreau family, now in its 15th generation, owning the estate has accumulated knowledge for more than 400 years, which of course is reflected in the quality of the wines. On the other hand, at the beginning of the 20th century, the historical decision was made that the estate avoide to use of chemicals, so it was always organic and they changed to biodynamic farming in 1990.
