Our featured wine of the week: June 26th

Domaine Dupueble .jpg

Domaine Dupeuble

In the hamlet of Le Breuil, deep in the southern Beaujolais, perched above a narrow creek, the Domaine Dupeuble has been running almost continuously since 1512. Tradition runs deep in the family, but each generation has also managed to add something new. Strong advocates of the lutte raisonnée approach to vineyard work, they tend their vines without the use of any chemicals or synthetic fertilizers.  The grapes are harvested manually and vinified completely without SO2. The wines are not chaptalized, filtered, or degassed and only natural yeasts are used for the fermentation. All of that means the most natural expression of Beaujolais for you! Wild strawberries, clay minerality and a distinct woody quality. Enjoy this with a little chill on it and you will see all the Gamay grape has to offer.

Our wines are often more subtle and earthy than the fruit-bombs that you find on most supermarket shelves but we believe that once you unlock their charms you will be hooked for life. And since these Old World wines were made on smaller vineyards that have existed for generations they also offer quite a great bang for the buck. There are some amazing New World wines out there but they tend to cost a great deal more than we want to charge our customers. We want to be the wine portal for people of all ages and incomes who are new to wine and want to explore without breaking the bank.
