Angela Quiblier and Hugo Foizel have joined to create the winery OBORA, based in Chenas, Beaujolais, after working together at Domaine des Jeunes Pousses.
Angela started her studies in Food Science in Canada and returned to France to learn oenology. Originally from Jura, she discovered the wine world thanks to Stephane Tissot. Her professional experiences with Lalou Bize Leroy at Domaine Leroy, then at the Hospices de Beaune with Ludivine Griveau, and finally with Thibault Liger-Belair, have allowed her to understand the link between a wine grower, their vines and its wines.
Hugo was born in Champagne (Aube), in the heart of the Côte des Bar. He passed the Advanced Vocational Diploma (BTS) in viticulture oenology through an apprenticeship in Champagne, then continued his studies to obtain the oenology diploma. He has had multiple professional experiences, including at Domaine de Terrebrune in Bandol, then at Domaine de la Romanée Conti and Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé in Burgundy.
The name OBORA is a combination of their birthplaces and where they make wine together (Aube & Beaujolais & Jura). The winery is Certified organic and practises biodynamic farming. Inside the cellar, there are no additives, only natural yeast, and the wine is unfined and unfiltered. Only a minimal amount of SO2 is added before bottling.
One of the most exciting Beaujolais wineries to watch.
