Producer: Jean-Baptiste Duquesne is a Bordeaux Pirate, shaking up the conventions of Bordeaux bureaucracy and challenging the status quo. After his selling his French cuisine recipe sharing website, he wrote the book "Bordeaux: Une Histoire de Cépages" which is a detailed history of 19th Century grape varieties in the Bordeaux.

Obsessed, he turned Château de Cazebonne into the largest library of ancestral grape varieties, such as: Mancin, Castets, Bouchalès, St-Macaire, Jurancon noir, Mérille, Béquignol, Pardotte, Gros Cabernet, Petit Péjac, Sauvignonasse, Penouille…. He has already planted 26 of the recognised historical varieties and aims to have all 57 planted by 2030...
