This year was one of those rare vintages, where both the reds and the whites are exciting. The white blends have been made and are presently being bottled. The sound of the bottling line running at 3000 bottles an hour on a daily basis permeates through the cellar, reminding us of how many people enjoy our product. We trust you will be equally excited with the result.


Jeff and Pascal were in France in May to take care of the red wine blending with Raphael, our winemaker at Domaine Grier. The individual components were good but when they began blending, the excitement in the room was tangible. It is sometimes felt that a blend is better than the parts that go into it (whether it be different blocks of the same varietal or two or more different varietals blended together) and it was true in this case. While they were there, they visited a few clients around Perpignan and along the Mediterranean coast.
