Ori Vin is the project of Oriane Rosner in Milhavet, Gaillac. Relocating to Gaillac from London in March 2020, Oriane chanced upon Laure & Pierre Fabre of the nearby biodynamic Domaine Gayrard, volunteering her services in the vineyards and cellar, learning everything she could. In 2021, jumping at the opportunity to make some wine of her own and given a little space in their cellar, Oriane took over a few rows of vines at Domaine Gayrard, among them varieties that they rarely used (Gamay, Muscadelle) and the crop from their youngest Syrah vines. Planted over clay-limestone, farming is pristine and biodynamic, and whilst Oriane is technically negocé, she knows these vineyards deeply, and farms them as if they were her own.

Named in honour of Oriane's friend Margot who helped with pressing, GoGo is Gamay hand-picked, foot crushed, and macerated for three days in a cool room. Fermented in a 4 year-old 400l barrel for 8 months and racked to tank before bottling unfiltered with no sulphur. A shade darker and more structured than the 2021 vintage, with a herbaceous streak amongst the juicy red fruit.
