Why Having Cantin With Terroirs Export?
Benoit Cantin's Irancy has been the first wine I tasted while i was 10 or 11. This is maybe why I am today working in the wine industry. His wines are pure, well made and bring a fantastic value to the wine drinker.
When I start Terroirs Export, I went to see benoit to export his wines. He never really did it before and agreed right away.
