Emmanuel Darnaud is one of the most likeable and enthusiastic vignerons in the northern Rhône. He is also fortunate enough to have Bernard Faurie, the legendary Hermitage producer, as a father-in-law. Based in Pont De L’Isère, in the south of the appellation, he has now accumulated 15 hectares, on what he identifies as six differing terroirs. The 6 parcels are vinified separately and allowed three different ageing regimes, in oak of three different sizes (hence the name of his top wine Les Trois Chenes).
