The Winemaking

The co-operative was born over thirty years ago. At a time in which increasing numbers of people had moved to the cities and to factory work, three young men from local farming families got together to discuss the future of farming in this area.  They were deeply attached to the work and to their own land, but they wanted to find new ways of using traditional methods. To begin with, they merged their vineyards and built stalls for farm animals so they could use organic manure to fertilise their fields and vines. The old ways were combined with a very modern belief in organic farming as the way of the future, as part of the wider project known as ‘contraction’, involving reducing the human impact on the natural environment. 

Suitable for vegetarians & vegans, no allergens used (no dairy, no eggs) and fully organic certified. Biodynamic.

Please refer to our short memo on differences between organic, vegan, natural and strictly no added sulphites wines if you want to learn more.

Intriguing melange

Our first impression was insouciant but then the flavours developed in this wine, flowers, fruit and a touch of honey. I don't think we have encountered unfiltered wine before so a bit out of our comfort zone. It won't be in our top 10 list but an interesting experience.

Hi Jean, Thanks for the review! The appearance and bouquet of some natural wines can be a little questionable at times. What I love about them is that they are like The Ugly Duckling, and transform into something beautiful. The quality of the floral, sweet fruits ad honey tones make this wine a million miles apart from its cloudy and almost opaque appearance. Thanks! Alex Co-Founder

Can imagine sitting in the garden quaffing this wine on its own.
