Certified Organic

Wine made from grapes grown without synthetic pesticides, fertilizers and herbicides in the vineyard. Certified in the country of origin.


Tasting Notes

A unique blend made from the aromatic Viognier grape alongside a lesser-known native grape called Verdil. The combination is magic: aromas plus minerals that make this reminiscent of a fruited Muscadet.

Staff Pick Notes

Great wines come in all shapes and sizes. This one just happens to come in a rectangle. It ticks off a lot of boxes that are likely as important to you as they are to me. First of all, the packaging is more environmentally friendly than a standard bottle. The winery offsets its carbon emissions by planting trees and has instituted a cork recycling program for its bottled wines. Certified organic and vegan, the juice is pure & delicious. It's a refreshing blend of the Spanish native variety Macabeo and Viognier that offers balanced floral aromas and juicy acidity. Its lively character definitely keeps you coming back for sip after sip. Who needs a 750 ml bottle when you can get 3 liters of awesome in a box?!

The practice of adding Viognier to Syrah began as a way of taming the very ripe, tannic reds of the hot Côte Rôtie ("roasted slope"), but...
