Nice fruit, earthy, a very friendly cabernet franc. This is an uncomplicated, easy to enjoy red made from biodynamically farmed grapes. It's as easy on the wallet as it is on the earth!
This cuvée originates from soils rich in amphibole. It is vinified with a very short time on its lees. This makes the wine lively and fresh. Jo Landron, the owner winemaker of the Domaine uses no chemicals, harvests by hand and adheres to biodynamic farming practices.
Montinore practices biodynamic farming because they feel it consistently produces some of the best fruit. Dry, aromatic and crisp with hints of lemon on the palate.
This is real Bordeaux, with red fruits predominating now, but with a bit more time, the subtle hints of leather and tobacco (that can be achieved nowhere else but Bordeaux) will become more and more pronounced. Too many inexpensive wines from Bordeaux lack this unique complexity that defines the region, and we were thrilled to discover this wine for this price. Jean-Luc and Catherine Hubert manage the estate from the vines to the bottling line, and the family has been growing wine in the area since 1895. Better still, the Hubert’s are the largest biodynamic farmers in the
Nadia Lusseau is the young winemaker who founded this domaine in 2002. Located 10 kilometers from Duras and 25 kilometers from Bergerac—minutes away from the city of Bordeaux. Nadia takes a smart and traditional approach to winemaking and she's been farming organically since ’05. We love this wine for its honest simplicity. A little touch of grapefruit on the nose leads to a round Semillon mouth feel with balanced acidity. Winemaking Details: Unfined, Unfiltered, Vegan, Wild Yeast Fermentation, Low SO2 Added
Montinore practices biodynamic farming because they feel it consistently produces some of the best fruit. This is a dry but crazy aromatic wine, offering a nose of rose petal, lychee and grapefruit, all following through on the palate. Winemaking Details: Fermented and Aged in Tank
The winemaker decided to create a distinctive new wine by blending 2 vintages, 2006 and 2009. The result of this balancing act is greater than the sum of its parts; a charming new cuvee that delivers immediate fresh fruit pleasure of Provence. Bright black fruit, but not jammy, balanced with food friendly freshness then a hint of tannins. Joie de Provence!
Not yet 40 years old, Nicolas Gonin learned to make wine from quite a diverse group of winemakers including Ridge Vineyards' Paul Draper and Domaine Tempier in Bandol. He has a passion for saving rare indigenous grape varieties like Altesse. Local to the Savoie region of France, Altesse brings exotic aromas of citrus and herbs with a great minerality, plenty of acidity and a rich texture. Not like anything we've tried, this is a great wine to pair with all manner of lighter foods, and it's delicious all by itself too. Winemaking Details:
A fantastic wine from one of the few biodynamic producers in Portugal. Afros winery is the brainchild of architect Vasco Croft, from Lisbon, who decided to explore his passion for wine in a family Quinta in the Vinho Verde Region. He follows the biodynamic principles introducing mountain horses, sheep, bees and special water cascades as part of the farm life, where vines are mainly treated through plant extracts. Made from 100% Loureiro, it is refreshing with bright and vibrant acidity. Blends of citrus and tropical notes, it is clean, dry and mineral.
Christine and Joel Mneard have been making wine in the heart of Coteaux du Layon AOC for more than twenty years. They practice bionynamic methods in their 13 hectares of vines. The wine was made as naturally as possible, no artificial yeasts and unfiltered. Fresh nose with notes of flowers, almonds and subtle pear and a finale of honey. It is charming and delightful!
