Coming from the organic Brueske Vineyard in Carneros, this is a Pinot Noir that defies the classic notions of what the grape is "supposed" to be. Extremely high toned raspberry and pomegranate with an almost chalky finish. Put a slight chill on this wine for the first glass and wait until the wine opens up into its full, flowery potential.
We do very little in the cellar because we spend time in our vineyards. Proper pruning, precise suckering, well-timed treatments and thoughtful weed management lets us minimize the pesticide inputs in our vineyards. We do this to preserve the indigenous microbes on the grapes and in the soils, which leads to healthier and more complex wines that don’t need adjusting or stabilizing. Our goal year in and year out is to bring you a unique taste of the distinct times and places which we love and tend. The care that we bring through the entire winegrowing process shines through into the final product. Our wines are balanced in their youth, but the care we invest in the winegrowing will continue to reverberate in your cellar for years to come. - Shaunt Oungoulian & Diego Roig, Les Lunes Wine
Shaunt Oungoulian and Diego Roig, the guys behind Les Lunes Wine, lease their own vineyards, work their own vines, and built their own cellar with their bare hands. They're blazing their own trail like the pioneering winemakers of California with the ambitious goal of growing wines that pay respect to the great wines of California’s past. As one of a handful of domestic producers pushing the envelope of what is possible with natural wine, they are already well on their way to achieving their goals, and we're excited to add their wines to our portfolio.More from this winery
