Bruno Duchene, originally from the Loire Valley, has quite the CV. From his family's farm machinery business, he went on to become a distributor of wild mushrooms in Burgundy which is where he fell in love with natural wine, and he went on to become Frederic Cossard's right hand man. Now he makes wines from his biodynamically farmed 4 hectares in Banyuls sur Mer in the Roussillon, just a few kms from the Spanish border.
La Luna Blanc is produced from Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris and also Xarel lo from the Penedes in Spain - it is a fresh, succulent and textural white.
