Two of our wines were amongst the top selections in the recent “Wine Without Walls” competition at Vinitaly this year. This is a new competition that was established by Alice Feiring, who was one of the judges. The competition focused on natural wines.

We are in the craft spirits business! 

As of July 1st we can now offer you a portfolio of fine spirits centered on the excellent line-up from Craft Distillers.   We plan to grow the spirits portfolio, slowly, in a similar fashion to our wine portfolio; choosing producers who focus on local ingredients, use care in the process and who show a sensitivity to the environment-- and oh yes--who also stress flavor and character! 

We are happy to be part of this growing movement of craft spirits and look forward to being a part of it for a long time to come.

Healthy grapes and bright acidity are considered just as important as Oechsle measurements in today's wines

The 2015 vintage will be remembered for its dry, hot summer growing season. It will also be revered for the stellar quality fruit harvested by the VDP estates, even if overall yields were distinctly lower than in years past.

This is cool. Not a lot of silex in Champagne, but this piece comes from @jmseleque's parcel of Les Gouttes d'Or in Pierry, from which he makes an excellent single-vineyard meunier called Les Solistes. #Repost from @peterliem using @RepostRegramApp #instawine #vinnaturel #silex #meunier #growerchampagne
