The Laissez Faire principle may have its origins in economics but the notion of non-intervention rings pretty true in viticulture and winemaking as well.
The wines we release under the Laissez Faire label almost make themselves. They come from ideally situated vineyards with low density plantings of dry grown bush vines in favourable micro-climates. In other words vineyards in natural balance. The fruit they produce is hand harvested and sorted, naturally fermented and rarely, if ever, subjected to addition in the winery.
When we asked ourselves how best to produce gentle wines with a natural sense of place we heeded the advice of a lefty from Liverpool; “There will be an answer, let it be”.
