Chloé Bey and Jordan d’Osualdo met at harvest for Bruno Schueller 2018 and established Tailleurs Cuilliers (meaning: pruners pickers) with their first harvest in 2021. They moved to Bugey looking for a cool climate home base and were  able to purchase small plots around the village of Saint-Jean-le Vieux on the north side of Bugey. They are focused on the ideas of non-action and wild agriculture and hope to bring these ideas through to the finished product.  They are working 3 plots, 4ha total: Varey, Poncieux, Dalivoy. They are farming Gamay, Mondeuse, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay. The farming uses organic and biodynamic practices, agroforestry is a part of their long term plan (planting fruit trees, starting with 21 trees in 2022). No sulfur, unfiltered, all wines are aged in demi-muids, old oak or acacia for 9 months.
