One of a handful of Japanese winemakers who settled down in France after having learned with the finest natural wine producers in the country, Kohki Iwata’s Wa Sud is a domaine that really plays according to its own rules. The wines are very fairly priced, clean and juicy

The art of winemaking must be in the blood of brothers Benoit and SĲbastien Danjou-Banessy – grapes and vines have been a part of their family heritage for generations. Benoit took over the vineyards in 2001 and was joined five years later by SĲbastien.
The brothers were the first generation of the family to introduce still wines, dry white and reds made from very old vines of local grapes, for example the rare Carignan Gris.
Viticulture is fully biodynamic and non-interventionist and has been for generations. All these factors lead to delicious wines that are lively, elegant, and softly textured. They are unlike any others from the south of France.
