November: Classic Regions, Cutting Edge Producers
As you begin your wine journey with us, you’ll likely want to revisit your favorite regions – many people do. That’s how some places become known as The Classics.
But classic doesn’t have to mean old hat or run of the mill. In fact, in some of the most famous regions of the world, the best producers are on the cutting edge of wine.
Take these four wines, each a brilliant, even superlative example of a classic region: German Riesling, White Burgundy, Beaujolais and Piedmont. All four are produced by newcomers or the next generation at already famous winemakers. And all four are on the cutting edge of quality in their region.
At 3 of this month’s 4 wineries, women are either at the helm (Du-bois and Fricke), or play a large role in the operations (Vajra – every- one in the Vajra family is involved!).
But more than just representing the next generation in wine, all four of these wineries offer something that defines great wine for us: a sense of place, as well as individuality.
