I first met Matt and Amy in Minnesota. Yep, Minnesota. Matt’s sister, a good friend of mine, lives down the street and she knew I really enjoyed wine. So, when her brother and sister-in-law came for a visit, it was natural that she would bring them over to meet me. Suffice it to say, we really hit it off. And on some level, this “producer ” relationship has become the model for what we at BWS would love to see all of our relationships look like. We eat together, we most certainly drink together and we get to know each other on a level much deeper than winemaker/importer. Now I know that’s a bit pollyannish, but I’m still going to make it the goal.
While I consider Matt and Amy very good friends, and they have been beyond generous to BWS with their time, connections, and home in the south of France, they are also supremely skilled in the vineyards and the cellar, turning out wines of balance, precision and authenticity. And speaking of the cellar, they have a brand new space in the village of Vers Pont du Gard that gives them not only room to turn around without bumping into each other, but a space adjacent to the cellar that in time will become a tasting room. It’s a great project and one you must check out if you find yourself in the neighborhood.
They embarked on this crazy two--person adventure in 2005. They farm just over six hectares of vineyards. And when they talk about doing things by hand (planting, pruning, harvesting . . .) with the help of friends and family, I can personally attest that it’s not just romantic wine marketing speak. I spent a week helping (or getting in the way, depending on your perspective) during the 2013 harvest and the respect and admiration I already had for the true artisan winemaker was taken to an entirely new level. La Gramière makes around 8000 - 10,000 bottles a year of Grenache-based organically farmed wine. We are thrilled to have the pleasure to work with their wines and we know you won’t be disappointed.
