Côtes-de-Provence to try out foreign varietals

With the help of the French Vine & Wine Institute, the Chamber of Agriculture and the IHEV, the Côtes de Provence producer’s organisation has drawn up a "short list" of 10 red, white and rosé grape varieties from the south of France, Greece, Italy and South Africa, which all have strong resistance to drought, good acidity levels but low ABV, and are not very prone to disease.

Volcanic Wines Explode In Central France

Volcanic Wines Explode In Central France

When people think of central France, few consider volcanoes. Yet geologically, the Auvergne region was—and may be again—a sizzling locale sculpted by spewing magma and spitting craters. Because volcanoes can create complex, mineral rich soils, vines that flourish over such once baking terroir can produce distinct and singular wine vintages.

The French vintner, Alexis Lichine, was known for skillfully keeping one foot in Bordeaux and the other in the United States. The Bordelaise remember him as the proprietor of Chateau Prieure-Lichine in Margaux, while most Americans knew Lichine as the husband of 1950s film star, Arlene Dahl.

Monbazillac: les vignerons ont décidé de planter 800 arbres fruitiers dans le vignoble

Non les vignerons de Monbazillac n’ont pas décidé de remplacer leur nectar par de la poire ou de la pomme, même si « y en a aussi ». Ce projet mené avec le département va dans le sens de la biodiversité et une démarche citoyenne puisque les gens pourront se servir…


Prachtig initiatief.

French vines still ahead of the growth curve this year

In Languedoc, “On February 29, as I was pruning Grenache vines above Saint-Chinian, at an elevation of 300 metres, buds had burst on all the vines and you could see two or three leaves separating at the ends of the shoots. Today the Grenache is at the three to five leaf-stage in the early-ripening vineyards. We are a good two weeks ahead of last year”, reported Jacques Rousseau of the Co-operative Wine Institute (ICV).

Petite Sirah in France? A Flip of the Coin at Clos Hirissou

The greatest joy of starting PS I Love You, the advocacy group for Petite Sirah, has been the people I’ve met along the way. People from all over the world have contacted me about Petite, and this is the most recent communication, during the last 18 years of relationships.

This one is one of the most important, also.

Vanavond gedronken Studio by Miraval Blanc 2019.

Ok, ik drink vooral rosé uit de Provence maar als een goede wijnmaker daar witte wijn gaat maken vind ik dat vaak haast nog beter als de rosé.
En deze is daar geen uitzondering op!
Het hele marketing verhaal van de beroemde filmsterren er om heen moet je gewoon negeren cool smiley
