Vincent Paris is a native of Cornas. He inherited most of his vines (some of which are 100 years old) from his grandfather and also rents vines from his uncle, the legendary Cornas vigneron Robert Michel. The biodynamically farmed vines, which are located in various parcels along the southeast facing Cornas slope, total approximately 17 hectares.
Vincent’s wines exhibit power, yet possess a determined freshness to them. His famed Geynale parcel is comprised exclusively of old vines planted in 1910. Vincent Paris is without a doubt one of the rising stars of the Rhône Valley.
