Born in towns that face each other across the Rhône River, René-Jean Dard and François Ribo met in wine-making school in Beaune, starting their own domaine together in 1984.
Working 7.5HA of vines in the Rhone Valley scattered over 7 villages, most of their holdings lie in Crozes-Hermitage, some in St-Joseph and a slice of the hallowed Hermitage vineyard.
These are wines that resonate with purity of fruit, unfettered by a heavy hand in the cellar clouding their sense of place and pure deliciousness in the glass. Expect sapid, textured white wines and beautifully detailed reds that are hard to put down. Dard & Ribo are one of the darlings of the ‘lo-fi’ wine scene and their wines grace the hottest wine-lists across the globe from 3-star Michelin to trendy Parisian wine bars. One of our favourite producers.
