Natural Wine Tasting with Farm Wine Imports
Tuesday, June 12, 7-9PM, Ticketed
Organic Natural Wine Tasting with Coralie Delecheneau
$40 for 18 Reasons members; $50 for general public
18 Reasons and Jeff Viera from Farm Wine Imports are so excited to have winemaker Coralie Delecheneau join us for a night of wine tasting from her vineyard La Grange Tiphaine. We will sip 6 different natural wines and listen to Coralie talk about the history of the vineyard. The vineyard is run by husband and wife team Coralie and Damien Delecheneau who are young and passionate. They took over the vineyard from Damien's father and have already gained the respect and admiration of their fellow winegrowers (the kind we like).
Here's a little bit about the vineyard:
The Estate consists of roughly 30 acres of vines in both the Touraine-Amboise appellation and more recently in Montlouis. They have no plans to expand as they want to do the vineyard work themselves. Average age of the vines is 60 years, with some vineyards like that of the Cot over 120 years. Vineyards are replanted as necessary using massal selection. In 2008 the Estate converted to being fully organic. They work without chemicals, hand harvest, ferment with ambient yeast, pump the wines only after pressing and the whites do not go through malo.
