Return to Terroir/Renaissance des Appellations is a group founded by Nicolas Joly in 2001. All the participating wine-growers recognize that the relationship between soil and climate has a different "face" everywhere on earth and strive to express the unique characteristics of their special terroirs.

The group adhere to a strict Quality Charter concerning vineyard and cellar practices. The members of Return to Terroir/Renaissance des Appellations have applied biodynamic or organic vineyard practices on their entire domaines for at least 3 years and the exceptional quality of their wines meets the standards set by the founder and the directors of the group (N. Joly, O. Humbrecht, D. Léclapart, A.-C. Leflaive, P. Morey, Ph. du Roy de Blicquy, Raimond de Villeneuve).
