Lo-Fi Wines Santa Barbara Valley Cabernet Franc Clos Mullet 2018Regular price $28.00 Save $-28.00
Varietal: Cabernet Franc
Lo-Fi’s ethos is to embrace the unpredictable and uncontrollable factors in vintage and vinification, much like an audiophiles derive pleasure from the clicks, pops, and hiss of their favorite vinyl records. The duo behind Lo-Fi, Mike Roth and Craig Winchester, has built vineyard connections and winemaking chops that put them in a position to deftly guide the fermentation process of these vibrant wines without manipulations or additions. Lo-Fi is marked by easy drinking, low alcohol, neutral barrel—if any—oak, native yeasts, little or no sulfur or other interventions that hide the fruit or the vintage that spawned it. Nothing added and nothing taken away.
Clos Mullet is a single vineyard and the only vineyard that Mike Rothe actually owns. This site tends to make a little more structured/ serious cab franc than any other he works with. Hand harvested and organiclly grown; 100% de-stemmed. Pumped over once daily. No sulfur used at harvest. Fermented on the native yeasts. The wine was fermented for two weeks then pressed to tank, settled, then racked to barrel the following day. Total of 20 ppm so2 added without filtration.

Les Champs Libres Lard des Choix Rouge 2020Regular price $27.00 Sale price $22.00 Save $5.00
Varietals: Syrah and Gamay de l'Ardeche
Les Champs Libres is a small negociant label run by René-Jean Dard and Hervé Souhaut, two of the most iconic organic producers in the Northern Rhone. The grapes are sourced from organically tended vineyards, and vinified without manipulation or intervention.
This is a blend of the area's major red grapes - Syrah and Gamay de l'Ardeche (a distinct vine of Gamay different from Beaujolais) - from organic vineyards, made in vat and bottled unfiltered with no sulfur added. Dark fruited with a basket of spices and a rocky backbone evocative of the arid land from which this comes. Light on its feet, fresh, and juicy. Really clean and precise and lightly grippy. Throw this in the fridge for a bit and serve chilled.
Domaine du Possible "Tout bu or not tout bu" 2019Regular price $28.00 Save $-28.00
Varietal: 70% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre
Full carbonic maceration of 15 days in concrete vats. Aging five to six months in concrete. 7mg per liter of sulfur added at bottling.
Nestled in the tiny village of Lansac, Domaine du Possible is the brainchild of Loïc Roure. In 2003, Loïc scrapped his initial plan of opening a restaurant/winebar/retailer, deciding instead to start his own estate. Starting out with some vines in Latour de France, he soon expanded with land closer to Lansac. He also recently purchased four hectares in Caudiès-de-Fenouillèdes, a half an hour drive from the Agly Valley. The estate now consists of 10.5 hectares spread over many parcels and communes, all falling under the Côtes du Roussillon AOC.
The wines are vinified to be fresh, bright and easy-to-drink. Extraction and alcohol remain low, and instead the focus is on fruit, minerality and acidity. Most of the wines are initially
Foot-trodden, then whole clusters are added, resulting in a spontaneous, semi-carbonic maceration. Sulfur additions, if any, are decided each vintage, wine by wine. In cases where sulfur is added, Loïc never uses more than 10mg for the reds and 20mg for the white, and only at bottling.

A historically significant winery whose origins date back to 1670. In this year, two of the estate’s most important vineyards—Perdaudin and Prachiosso—were first planted. With some of the most desired vineyard sites in Roero, Negro is one of the indisputable legends of the region. Giovanni Negro, the estate’s present owner, produced the first dry Roero Arneis on record in 1971. Following tradition, the winery in Monteu Roero now boasts a stunning lineup of Arneis as well as an impressive range of Roero Nebbiolo. Today, Negro observes organic practices while managing a staggering 64 hectares.

Hervé Souhaut Romaneaux-Destezet Syrah 2019Regular price $43.00 Save $-43.00
Varietal: 100% Syrah—30 year-old vines
Violets, bacon fat and black cherry all interplay on the nose. Deep black cherry and juicy plum flavors meshed with candied violets and cool strawberry flavors on the palate. The moderate tannins highlight the fruity components on the finish.
Grapes are hand-harvested and undergo a very long maceration at a low temperature—without destemming. The wine is fermented in wooden tanks and aged on fine lees in second-hand oak casks for eight months. The wine is bottled without filtration. The wine has a total SO2 of only 25mg/L.
Hervé Souhaut created Domaine Romaneaux-Destezet in 1993. Hervé works 5-hectares of old and ancient vines—between 50 to 100 years old. He is very fortunate to own two vineyards in the Rhône Valley just opposite the storied hills of Hermitage in Saint Joseph. This region is widely recognized as being one of the finest areas for wine production on the planet; thanks in part to its elevation, ancient vineyard sites, and southeastern and southern exposures. The domaine is located further into the hills of the Northern Ardeche in the tiny town of Arlebosc, about a 30-minute drive, winding through the hills from St Joseph. The winery is underneath the 16th century “les romaneaux” fortified farm and sits in the middle of the vines that make up the Souteronne, Syrah, and white cuvées.
