Coteaux du Lyonnais
Toit du Monde comes from old vines planted in 1929 in the commune of Bibost, up in the hills further away from the city of Lyon. The vines are between 500 and 700 meters in altitude, planted facing east on a vein of blue diorite similar to that found on the Côte de Brouilly. After making his first few vintages in a his garage in Millery, in 2020 Baptiste decided to move his home and winery to Bibost where there is more open space and less encroachment from the city. He continues to farm the vines around Millery, and has added additional vineyards in Bibost.

All the reds are made with whole cluste, native yeast and no added sulfur, but the rest of the vinification changes based on Nayrand's intuitive feeling at each harvest to make the best wine possible from that year's grapes. Sauvage is pressed with a small vertical basket press.
