Wine made from organically or biodynamically grown grapes with minimal intervention avoiding the use of chemicals, additives and technology.


Tasting Notes

A great wine for adventurous palates; it is best enjoyed alongside hearty meals. The cuvée is named after the film from Bertand Blier, the famed French director whom the winemaker happens to be obsessed with.

Staff Pick Notes

Don’t you ever get tired of playing it safe? Need a break from dainty wines? Me too! Lately, I’ve been looking for wine that will yank me by the arm. Cabernet Franc has never been a bashful grape, but this one openly flaunts its features. To go any further would be to rip its shirt.

Pull the cork and plunge into this wine. Don’t worry, your favorite bottles will still be there when you surface.

Cabernet Franc has remained close to its roots in France, enjoying small pockets of popularity primarily in the Loire Valley (specifically in Chinon), where it is often bottled as a varietal...
