Domaine du Pech, Le Pech Abusé - Middle Garonne, South-West France
Founded in 1978 by Daniel Tissot, son of long-standing winemaking family in Jura - It is now Magali, his daughter and her partner the ever smiling Ludovic Bonnelle. In 2003, the transition to converting the winery to biodynamics began, to reduce the doses of copper and sulphur used; this was also the year the first manual harvest took place. A garnet-hued wine mellowed in old oak foudres, developing striking prune and leather aromas after several years in the bottle.
Dossi Retici, Nessje Vino Rosso – Lombardy, Italy
The family of Elena Meago and Bruno Credaro have produced wines for 5 generations in Valtellina, having started in the late XIX century. Until the end of the ’90s the whole production was entirely sold in Switzerland in bulk. With the Swiss market declining, the family created the “Dossi Retici” winery and started bottling its own production. Red-orange sunset reflections. The taste is fruity and full-bodied with fruity aromas.
Dominio del Urogallo, La Fanfarria Tinto - Asturias, Spain
The tradition of grape growing and wine making in Asturias dates back to the 9th century. Fran Asencio is the man behind Dominio del Urogallo, has always been fascinated to work with old vines, steep slopes, complex soils and cooler climate. He now has about 14 hectares of vines, which he restored to health through organic and biodynamic farming and restored structurally by back-breaking manual labour. Bright, juicy red and black fruits emerge, then the tannins introduce themselves. The balance of fruit and tension is quite lovely and will keep you coming back for more.
Clos du Gravillas, A Fleur de Peau - Saint Jean de Minervois, Languedoc, France
Nicole grew up in Narbonne, John came to St Jean de Minervois from much farther west, Kentucky. In 1996, this sud French girl convinced her southern bred boy that the white rocks of St Jean were the most beautiful rocks in the world. 100% Muscat Petits Grains from certified organic vines, unfined, low added suplur, indiginous yeasts. An unusual grape to make a dry orange wine from! Delicious notes of white flowers, citrus and fresh tannins to pair with fish soup and anything with coriander or why not simply cheese on toast!…
Nasciri, Greco Bianco – Calabria, Italy
Nasciri is run by Domenico and Francesca. The project began and continues on land owned by Domenico’s family, the aim simple: to regenerate the land, allowing spontaneous life and nature centre stage. Nasciri in Calabrian dialect means born and this perfectly captures Nasiciri’s efforts to ensure the old farmland’s rebirth. Amber colour with golden reflections. The aroma is complex and enveloping but at the same time mineral and fresh thanks to a dose of balanced acidity.
Jumpin Juice, Gee Dub - Southern Margaret River, Australia
Gee Dub: Australian Muscadet! Pure, crisp and raw. Destemmed, seven days on skins, then pressed straight to tank.

Farmed by Mike Sleegers who is one of the great unsung grape growers in Australia." The wine is packed full of citrus and zesty acidity. White peach and lemon zest on the nose with flavours of juicy pear and apricot on the slightly textured and racy palate. The wine is packed full of citrus and zesty acidity.
