Negociant :A wine merchant buys grapes or wine to blend, vinify and mature. He accompanies and advises the wine grower on how to work his vineyard, and finishes off what is left to do once the harvesting is over. In my eyes the wine merchants job does not stop there, it requires a faithful commitment in favor of men and of their territory, taking into account those who grow the grapes, those who make the wine, and those who drink it.
From a winegrowing family, Arnaud Combier has been making natural wines in Burgundy for over twenty years. After working in his own domain and multiplying collaborations, he is now developing an activity as a wine merchant-breeder.
