The “Don’t Panic, It’s Organic!” Urban Sampler: $50

Join us on Saturday, April 5 from 2-5 at UGSE and 3-6 at UGCH to sample the wines from this month’s Sampler!

 

   

April represents rebirth, and the best way to reincarnate is through a self-sustainable environment. Our “Don’t Panic, It’s Organic” sampler comes from grapes that contain no pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, synthetic fertilizers, or chemicals. Wines made with organic grapes cannot exceed 100 ppm of sulfites as opposed to conventional grapes that may contain sulfite levels up to 350 parts per million. These four wines are the perfect way to treat yourself and the environment! 

  • 2012 Domaine de la Louvetrie Muscadet Sevre et Maine (Loire, FRA): 

    Jo Landron and his iconic mustache have taken the throne as the king of organic Muscadet! The amphibolite soil in the Western Loire produces a fruity, aromatic, lively and refined white wine. Its marine notes guarantee a fruitful relationship with seafood, but it can also be served with light salads.  

  • 2012 Cantina Numa Tolenus Rosso Piceno (Marche, ITA): 

    According to some, Rosso Piceno wines are considered meditation wines. Hailing from the Marche on Italy’s Adriatic coast, the rosso piceno designation imposes Montepulciano may vary from 35-70% and Sangiovese in a range between 30-50%. Rarely do any producers go beyond the two main varieties. Perfecto with Antipasto!

  • 2012 Mas de Gourgonnier (Provence, FRA):  

    The Cartier’s estate, set deep in the heart of “les Baux de Provence” has been family run for several generations.  Far from any pollution and having the advantage of a very hot, dry and windy climate, Mas of Gourgonnier uses biological farming methods, forbidding use of chemical fertilizer, weed killer and insecticide. The soil is fertilized only by compost, and manure. This rustic red blend is divine with Easter lamb!

  • 2010 Peybonhomme Bordeaux (Blaye, Cotes du Bordeaux): 

    Chateau Peybonhomme-Les-Tours boasts rich clay soil with a very chalky base, which makes exceptional wines. After a careful winemaking process with fermentation carried out by indigenous yeasts, this wine shows dominance of red fruits alongside hints of spices. A complex and well-made Right Bank Bordeaux!
