Natural wine was born in Beaujolais, according to many. In the 80's it was a group of winemakers following the enologist Jules Chauvet that started experimenting with winemaking without sulfites and in a general "back-to-nature" method. These first pioneers included Marcel Lapierre, Jean Foillard, Yvon Métras, Guy Breton, Jean-Paul Thévenet and Georges Decombes. Names that are still considered the absolute top of Beaujolais. Later, others became inspired by these natural wines and followed suit, including future stars like Jean-Louis Dutraive.
