Where and How?

This is a blend of Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains, Muscat of Alexandria and Macabeu, organically farmed and planted on schist soils.

The whole bunches were macerated for a period of five to seven days, after which the wine fermented naturally and aged in 500L barrels. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. 

The Winemaker

… Boy meets girl in vineyard. Boy falls in love with girl as they catch one another’s gaze across the fermenting barrels. Sounds like a romance novel, right? Right. In reality, it wasn’t quite like that. Rather, the girl in question — Natalie, the daughter of Gérard Gauby whose domaine Tom was working at — impressed Tom by eating an eyeball right out of a sheep’s head (a South African tradition). Tom was smitten; it was the beginning of a beautiful Roussillon romance. Twenty years later, they have two children, a farm and a business together.⁣

Tom reminisces on his early days making wine in South Africa, saying,⁣

“I was able to get my first two vintages past the tasting regulation panels, so they could get sold. I guess nobody really took notice, they just thought it was some weird bulls*&t that would go away.” ⁣

Those couple of barrels of weird bulls*&t would actually end up kickstarting an entire movement—not just in South Africa, but across Europe—from Beziers to Vienna.⁣

So, it wasn’t some weird bulls*&t, and it didn't go away. Rather it’s about a simple and pure concept: organic farming, and fermented grape juice—without the bulls*&t.⁣
