Marcel Idler is at the forefront of Swabian winemaking, quietly revolutionizing the scene with his light touch and low extraction methods. His wines are full of life, incredibly precise, gentle yet powerful, much like Marcel himself.

His vineyards consist of 30-35 parcels within a 2 km radius of his winery and home, with twenty-five percent planted to Trollinger. Marcel emphasizes preserving valuable aromas and making them tangible in the wines. A gentle harvest is the foundation, and the wines are carefully developed in wood and stainless steel with minimal technical influence.

For years, Dolores Cabrera has been tending to her vineyards in the Valle de la Orotava, Tenerife, embracing organic farming practices long before they became mainstream. While some of her plots have earned official organic certification, all have been cultivated with the same conscientious approach. Transitioning from selling her grapes to larger producers, Dolores embarked on her winemaking journey in 2013, birthing La Araucaria. This venture represents her unique and natural interpretation of the Listan Negro grape, the cornerstone varietal of her region.

Christina Netzl's journey into natural winemaking began at the tender age of 5, tending to her family's farm and vineyard alongside her parents and grandparents. With time, her parents redirected the family business solely towards grape cultivation and winemaking, expanding it to encompass the 28 hectares they currently operate in the Carnuntum winemaking region, situated just east of Vienna and north of the Neusidler See. Christina pursued studies in oenology and wine management in London, immersing herself in diverse wine styles from around the globe. Upon her return to the winery in 2007, she collaborated with her parents, later fostering a fervent commitment to organic viticulture, particularly after becoming a mother of two.

We met Hodgkinson initially at RAW Wine NYC then went out to visit them in Priorat when we moved to Spain! Their wines are incredibly traditional and beautiful. When you are tired of the natty juice and are looking for a refined, oaked wine, these are a perfect respite knowing they are made without additives but taste like the classics you still know and love! The family bought Peter's Plot several decades ago and have been restoring the vines. It's one of the most beautiful places we've ever been!

Club Pick 7

Region: Abruzzo, Italy

Davide Gentile and Marco Giuliani, childhood friends from Abruzzo who lost touch after university, reunited with a shared passion for wine. Together, they embarked on a winemaking journey fueled by a deep appreciation for natural methods and bold experimentation. Unlike many, they eschewed formal wine education, agronomists, and oenologists, opting instead to learn through hands-on experience in vineyards and cellars. Their inaugural fermentation in 2010 was plagued by mishaps, prompting them to seek the intervention of an expert grandmother, known for her skill in dispelling the evil eye, to perform a ritual over their grapes. Miraculously, it proved successful, giving rise to Lammidia ("evil eye" in Abruzzese dialect), their venture into winemaking. - From Cream Wine

Club Pick 8

Pinot Gris with a good amount of skin contact; half of the grapes are whole bunch fermented over 12 days, while the other half is fermented whole berry. A little funk with a lot of peach, floral, and juiciness. Ready and waiting for you to glug!

Region: Galicia, Spain

Manuel Formigo’s vineyards in Beade, part of Galicia’s Ribeiro DO, are steeped in winemaking heritage, with claims that Ribeiro wine was among the first brought to America by Columbus in 1492. Managing six hectares across seven plots, Formigo cultivates local grape varieties such as Palomino, Loureira, Torrontés, and Caíño, with vines aged 20-40 years. His family's deep winemaking roots are evident in his recovery of nearly lost indigenous vines, including the oldest Treixadura vines in Miñoteria, planted in the late 1970s. Formigo’s philosophy focuses on environmental respect and producing wines that reflect the true essence of the grapes and their unique plots, resulting in elegant, aromatic, and balanced wines.
