Great care is given to ensure a natural vinification and, this, teamed with the Biodynamic principles employed, allows the wines to reach a complexity and great purity: native yeasts, no collage, little or no sulphites. Pey-Bonhomme and La Grolet offer fruity wines rich in minerality, which are true to their terroir. 2 places, 2 landscapes separated only by 8 kms expressing different strengths. If Pey-Bonhomme makes it possible to obtain red solar and aerial wines, La Grolet expresses the element “Earth” from its clay-gravelly soil where the roots of the vines plunge deep into the earth.
Brother and sister Guillaume and Rachel, are the 6th generation of the family. They are continuing to uncover the uniqueness of the scenery and to preserve the landscape. Before replanting a plot, they plant hedges and fruit trees to obtain a true “effect-bocage” visible from the tower of the Castle Pey-Bonhomme! They also wish to propose a selection of original and exceptional cuvées. It is at Pey-Bonhomme that you will find a parcel named by the older generation as the “Plot of Penchant-Midi” reputed to be the one producing the best Merlots in Cars.
Pey-Bonhomme also has a 3 hectare vineyard of white grapes where they are producing a much sought after white wine of great finesse.
We look forward to sharing these wines with you in May

Champagne Atair – Stand X106

Contact: Philippe Gantois

w: www.atair.fr

Ataïr is a celebration of love.

An extremely ancient Chinese legend lies behind the Saint Valentine tradition that we know today. According to this legend, the star Ataïr fell in love with the young fairy Vega while she was bathing with her sisters in a lake. The couple were married. Ataïr proved himself to be a loving husband, and Vega a wonderful wife. But discovering that a mere mortal had married a fairy, the goddess of the skies separated the young lovers forever, tracing a broad river in the sky, and thus creating the Milky Way. Once a year, all the magpies in the world join together, forming a bridge over the river and allowing the eternal lovers to come together for just one night.

It is the story of this eternal love, a love that was forbidden and yet very real, that inspired the legendary history of Ataïr Champagne. Champagne that rings out in homage to all the lovers throughout the world, and which perfectly accompanies all their most precious celebratory moments.

Ataïr is a celebration of love. A celebration of young lovers, as well as those not so young, a celebration of love at first sight, of the craziest love stories as well as the more conventional.

Ataïr celebrates couples in love, couples entwined in each others arms, those with a multitude of children, and those with a multitude of plans. Ataïr celebrates the love that strikes out of the blue, the love that is completely irrational, and the love over which time has no hold.

Ataïr is a celebration of all these sparkling couples and all the couples who have the world at their feet.

About Us
We are an independent wine estate in the southern Rhône on the lower slopes of Mont Ventoux. Our farming is organic and we began certification as an organic producer several years ago.
eRobertParker.com gave 90 points to 4 of our wines The vines are mostly 30-50 years old, offering award-winning complex red, white and rosé wines, with subtle but engaging aromas and flavours.
Under new ownership from the 2011 vintage, our production is artisanal. Since 2011 we have four gold medals, three silver medals and the Trophy for the best white wine of the Appellation
Most of the vines on the 12 ½ hectares of planted land are 30-60 years old, so fully mature, giving the potential to produce complex wines. The location is ideal for producing high quality fruit, thanks to a combination of Provençal sunshine, mistral winds and limestone/clay soil. Reflecting the age of the vines, our yields are low and we produce between 40,000 and 45,000 bottles per year.
Our red wine production is from Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Carignan, the Southern Rhône standards. For white wine have Grenache Blanc, Clairette and Roussanne. For rosé we have Grenache and Cinsault, the classic provençal grape varieties.
We produce three ranges: Tradition, Reserve and Limited Edition at different price points..

We have two different lines of wine at the winery, from our 19 hectares we use around four hectares to produce our premium wine and then the rest of our vineyards are harvested to produce our daily-drinking wine.

Philipp and Johanna may be young, but they’re experienced. They’ve studied at Geisenheim University, worked in their family winery along with interning at wineries in Burgundy, Austria, Switzerland and Germany. We prune with sheep, harvest by hand, we use renewable energy as much as possible, and age our wine in French Oak. Our goal is to find an importer that would like to import either a selection of our daily-drinking wines, and perhaps our premium wine as well.

In the northern Italian Alps, a patchwork of steeply terraced vineyards graces the northern side of the valley in Lombardy that stretches 25 miles east to west. The vineyards, all facing south, receive optimum sun exposure and are ideal for growing grapes. Winemaking here dates back to the first millennium and nowadays Valtellina is the only well-established and recognized wine region almost completely dedicated to growing and making Nebbiolo.
In that valley, our history began in 1925 when Aldo Rainoldi started selling wine in Lombardy and in Switzerland. During the Sixties Giuseppe, Aldo’s son, started to export our wine all over the world especially in U.S.A., Canada, Japan and Europe.
Giuseppe realized immediately that he had to extend the range of our products in order to meet the needs of increasingly cosmopolitan and international customers.
At the end of the Nineties Aldo, Giuseppe’s nephew, after his graduation at University of Viticulture and Oenology of Turin, started supporting Giuseppe in managing the company and making wine.
Nowadays our production is around 190.000 bottles thanks to nine hectares and 78 wine growers who are followed by Aldo Rainoldi.
The production of top quality wine respecting our family tradition and the environment is our daily goal.

Quinta de Maritávora was founded in the mid 19th century in Douro Superior. Still a family-own, making it one of the oldest winery in Portugal. Between 1870 and 2003. In 2003, Manuel Gomes Mota, the great great grandson of the estate’s founder, took control of the estate, and quickly shifted the focus of the winery. Now much more focused on table wines, based upon the idea of preserving both heritage and terroir of the Douro, exemplified by organic farming and minimal intervention.

Herdade do Monte da Ribeira belongs to Casa Agrícola H.M.R., until 2010 called CADE – Companhia Agrícola de Desenvolvimento, S.A.

The estate is located on the outskirts of Marmelar, about 15 km from the town of Vidigueira and the Alqueva dam, and comprises approximately 330 hectares dedicated to croplands, hunting, olive and citrus groves and grape growing.

Located on the south slope of the Serra do Mendro, a geological formation separating the Upper and Lower Alentejo, the estate presents some topographical challenges. The valleys surrounding the mountain allow for the capture of significant quantities of water, an essential condition for modern agriculture in a region as hot and dry as the Lower Alentejo. The mountain slope also serves as a shelter from the prevailing winds that blow from the north and northeast which, in turn, translates into slightly higher temperatures and a lower relative humidity than its surroundings. All these factors have a great impact on the vineyard, aiding the grapes to ripen well and in a healthy fashion.

Contact: Sara Duque

w: www.altasquintas.com

Altas Quintas was born of an obsession for making Alentejo wines with unusual characteristics designed for demanding wine lovers.
Altas Quintas stands out, first of all, due to its location: a plateau at 600 meters above sea level in north-eastern Alentejo (Portalegre), at the hills of São Mamede Natural Park. The altitude, the properties of the mountain soil and a unique microclimate give rise to wines with unparalleled characteristics: an unrivaled balance of acidity in the whole of Alentejo!

The fermentation of red wines takes place in temperature-controlled French oak casks from Seguin Moreau cooperage. Barrels for maturation are only used for three years.

The Altas Quintas project was awarded 3 Gold Medals at The Spring Tasting of the Grand International Wine Award MUNDUS VINI 2017:
– Reserva White 2014;
– Colheita Red 2010;
– and Reserva Red 2007.

Herdade da Mingorra is recalling its history. It speaks of Henrique Uva, and his arrival to Alentejo 30 years ago, while looking for the wildest partridges of the region.

Today, he sees the accomplishment of not only a solid agricultural property but also a winery that yields assertive wines with character.

It is a story he decided to share, with the help of his 4 daughters, to see Mingorra and its wines reborn.

With 165ha of vineyard in full production and 10ha more growing well, Mingorra is now a producer that has assured its place on the market, nationally and internationally.

In all the bottles you can feel the signature of the winemaker and the attributes of making wine from vineyards of 30/45 years old.

Louisvale is situated at the foot of the majestic Stellenbosch mountains in verdant Devon Valley. Our lush, manicured vineyards produce outstanding wines, particularly Chardonnay for which we have won many awards. Louisvale, one of the pioneers of Chardonnay in South Africa, is still solely planted to Chardonnay albeit different Davis clones. The vineyards are all east-facing and planted in an east-west direction. The Bottelary Hill to the west offers welcome shade in the peak of summer when the sun sets behind it allowing for slower ripening and richer fruit development.Deep, well-drained Hutton and Clovelly decomposed granite soils ensure that the vineyards remain ‘dryland’ until after the harvest, after which the vines are irrigated. All Louisvale grapes are hand-harvested and the vineyard blocks are treated separately. Since 1994, the Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes have been sourced from the neighbouring vineyard, where the wine maker partners with the owner in managing the vines to Louisvale’s exact specifications. By doing this, he has ensured that the red wines have retained their Louisvale character.

Can Axartell is a winery located in the north of Mallorca, in a valley at the foothills of the “Serra de Tramuntana”, a mountain range declared as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
The marine breeze from the Mediterranean Sea and its particular limestone soil gives the grapes their distinctive characteristics and finesse.
The winery has been built into the depths of an old stone quarry in order to benefit from the natural coolness of the rocks during the winemaking process and the subsequent conservation of the wines. The architecture of the winery is based on the gravity principle: grapes find their way from the vines to the bottle only by the force of gravity, without using any sort of mechanical pumps.
In Can Axartell the vineyards are cultivated organically and the wines we produce are also totally organic. Currently the estate comprises about 60 ha where native varieties as Premsal blanc, Giró ros, Callet and Mantonegro are cultivated along with other highly regarded international grapes as Muscat, Malmsey, Pinot noir, Syrah, Merlot and Petit verdot.
Our motto is ‘The best wine is made with respect’, which defines how we work in Can Axartell and is what we truly believe.
