Dard & Ribo
René-Jean Dard & François Ribo are the Sonny & Cher or Freddie Mercury & David Bowie of wine. They have farmed and made wine the way they believe it should be — naturally — since the 80s. Back then they were the only ones in their region, and opposition was fierce. It's not been an easy ride.
Now, they're an inspiration to a herd of younger eco-minded growers. Neither wine from the Rhône (nor indeed French wine in general) would be quite what it is today without this iconic double act.
