The Jasci family has been producing wine for three generations, focusing all efforts on the pursuit of the absolute quality of every bottle. A passion for wine that was born with grandfather Pasquale and his wife Maria in the ‘60s, growing over the years thanks to his son Giuseppe and his wife Irma, who gave the historic turn of the organic in 1980, handed down since the early ‘90s to Donatello Jasci and his wife Piera, who lead the company with the help and participation of their predecessors who still bring experience and wisdom. The Jasci winemaking philosophy is to be eco-sustainable, respecting the environment, and combining tradition and experience that for decades has made their wines special. - Minum Selections

Christophe Lindenlaub, the visionary winemaker behind Lindenlaub wines, hails from a rich Alsatian farming heritage dating back to 1759 in Dorlisheim. Despite the domaine's seemingly youthful energy, it echoes a longstanding commitment to the land. Christophe's father, Jacques, initiated the transition from farming to winemaking in the 1970s, with a full immersion into viticulture occurring in 1986. Joining forces with his father in 1999, Christophe has been instrumental in steering the domaine's course.

Notably, Lindenlaub wines took a transformative leap in 2009 when Christophe embraced organic practices, achieving certification in 2012. Beyond cultivating healthy grapes, a distinctive feature of Lindenlaub wines is the abandonment of sulfur in the cellar since 2014. This daring decision adds a unique dimension to the wines, allowing them to reflect Christophe's personality — vibrant, unfiltered, and exuding boundless energy.

Christophe's infectious exuberance finds its way into each bottle, creating an experience akin to encountering a French version of the Fantastic Mr. Fox. The wines, much like their maker, shimmer with delight, evading easy definition and inviting enthusiasts to explore their complexities. The ENSO circle on each label encapsulates the Zen philosophy that orbits Lindenlaub wines, inviting wine lovers to savor not just a drink but a holistic and spirited expression of the winemaker's vision.

Producer Profile

It doesn't get much more old school than Bodegas Cueva. Founded in 2000, yet the the original winery is from the 18th century, and not much has changed since then. Mariano Taberner knows his land intricately and in an almost mystical way translates the Mediterranean essence through his grapes. One of the first to be certified organic (by the Comité de Agricultura Ecológica de la Comunidad Valenciana) he is committed to biodiversity and the health of his vineyards. Cueva hosts a variety of 100+ year old centenary vines of Tempranillo, Bobal, and Tardana (a white grape that is used for most of the sparkling wines). All of the wines are kept naturally cool in long, undisturbed underground cellars. As a winemaker, he's known for being a bit of a magician, using unique fermentation techniques and unconventional vinification methods. Everything is bottled without filtering, fining, or sulphur additions of any kind. - Selections de la Viña
