NOW IN STOCK: Domaine Henri et Gilles Buisson is our very latest find from the hugely underrated terroir of Saint-Romain. The Buisson family has been cultivating vines in this region since the 11th century.
Henri's son, Gilles, took over the domaine in the 1980s and now, the new generation, represented by his sons Franck and Frédérick, are leading the way!
As Burgundy lovers we cannot believe our luck. This is a unique chance to explore Saint-Romain's historic vineyard sites, with eight expressions of the village appellation and four stunning crus.
Sipping on a BYO Alsatian Riesling and eating pan friend dumplings on an old wooden table outside in the crisp Winter air on a Tuesday evening. Perfectly imperfect and damn delicious 😋

Everything started with an unexpected e-mail that Lamberto Frescobaldi received the 30th July 2012... it was sent by the director of the prison of the island of Gorgona.
In the email, the prison explained that they had a vineyard in the island and some of the prisioners were working in the vineyard. They were trying to make a wine the best they could, but the result wasn’t good enough because they didn’t had any winemaking experience, so they’ve decided to ask for the support of @frescobaldivini.
When Mr. Frescobaldi asked the director of the prison why did they chose him, they answered that they’ve contacted more than 100 wineries from the province of Livorno, but Frescobaldi was the only one winery who answered!
Lamberto Frescobaldi got immediately touched by the project and he visited the island three days later.. When he arrived to the island he visited the vineyard and one of the prisioners told Lamberto, that they had a lot to learn from them and they needed their help. In that moment, Mr. Frescobaldi understood that he had the mission of supporting this people. Since 2012 Frescobaldi collaborates with Gorgona and they hire the prisoners just as any other of their employees.. the persons of this prision feel much more motivated and they’ve found a new hope in this project, some of them are still working for the company even after they’ve completed their sentence... And the white wine they make is wonderful! I will tell you more in another post! #drinkstories #gorgona

La Petite Gaule Du Matin – 2018 Chenin/Souvignon Blanc
Frantz Saumon brings us a very zesty and animated wine from the pet nat popular Loire Valley. This pet nat, aged in steel and no degorgement performed, explodes with flavors every which way. Starting with a raw almond taste, this bubbly goodness follows with hints of apple and white peach and finishes with woodland/floral notes, specifically wildflowers and dandelions. Pairs best with chicken, turkey, seafood, especially raw fish.
