« I love my region and its mountains. » Laetitia grew up in the Alps, surrounded by vineyards. Her playground was the 24-acre family farm purchased by her grandfather in 1954.
The family knows that respecting traditions is a guarantee of quality. This is why, even today, the harvest is done by hand.
While her parents took over the family farm and successfully started promoting the local and forgotten ’Le Mollard’ grape (meaning ‘the Little Mountain’) – Laetitia dreamt of becoming a journalist and traveling the world. During more than 15 years, she worked passionately side by side with Paul Amar as a columnist, journalist, chief editor.
Great lover of wine and outdoor spaces, Laetitia finally followed the footsteps of her parents in leading the Allemand vineyard, smartly combining her two passions. She regularly writes for ’Les Grappes’, a blog dedicated to oenology.
What is it Laetitia loves so much in wine? She says she sees the winemaker as a writer, a poet and wine as a mean of expression. An elixir telling a story, full of encounters and travels.
Laetitia Allemand is our partner for our Mountain edition in risoul and we are delighted to have the Popins discover two of her wines, typical to the Risoul region: l’Orcanette and M&M Rouge
