Where The Wines Come From

Burgundy

Natural wine production in Burgundy, France, encapsulates a reverence for tradition and a commitment to environmental stewardship. Nestled amidst the storied vineyards of the Côte d'Or, natural winemakers in Burgundy embrace sustainable viticultural practices and minimalist intervention in the cellar. Here, the noble Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grape varieties reign supreme, their expressions shaped by the region's famed limestone soils and cool continental climate. In the pursuit of authenticity, these winemakers eschew synthetic pesticides and herbicides, opting instead for organic or biodynamic farming methods. Native yeast fermentation and low sulfur usage are hallmarks of Burgundy's natural wine movement, resulting in wines of purity, complexity, and finesse. On the palate, Burgundian natural wines exhibit a harmony of fruit, earth, and minerality, with a profound sense of terroir. Whether enjoyed in their youth or aged to reveal additional layers of nuance, these wines offer a genuine reflection of Burgundy's winemaking heritage and a testament to the enduring allure of low-intervention viticulture.
