About

The Estate

Third generation vigneron, Thomas Pico started his estate in Courgis (France) in 2004. His passion for wines, his curiosity, and his desire to respect the environment and the health of his loved ones, were the decisive elements to start Domaine Pattes Loup.

Winemaking

Motivated to take a qualitative leap in a new direction, he began a program of strict yield control and a conversion to organic viticulture (certification obtained in 2009). All work at the Domaine is done by hand. Pico ferments all wines using indigenous yeast, and he bottles without fining and filtration. Most of his wines are massal selection planted near the two highest altitude villages in the appellation (Courgis and Preys), with vineyards up to 300 meters in elevation.
