La Garagista, Vinu Jancu 2017

Hazy golden orange

Dry, dazzling bright freshness, gorgeously soft grip, and multifaceted palate of flavours and long finish. Wine discovery of the summer for me!

Simply intoxicating with layers of wild dried herbs, mirabelles, bergamot and cider

About the Producer

Remarkable naturally made wines from a biodynamic farm in Vermont, USA

La Garagista farm and winery began in 2010. They farm three parcels of co-planted, alpine varietals that are horticultural crosses of vinifera and native riparia and labrusca vines. They are practicing biodynamic and also pull from organic and permaculture concepts. The home farm and vineyard is situated in the Chateauguay, a protected forest in Barnard, Vermont (16oo feet) where they also grow vegetables and raise some livestock for their restaurant. In the vineyard they plant vegetables between the vines focusing on root vegetables, escaroles, chicories and flowers, all things that aid the soils in this parcel. The other two parcels are in the Champlain Valley (184/194 feet) and are close to Lake Champlain. No-till and natural field cover crops are part of the farming at these two vineyards, encouraging the flora and fauna particular to each microclimate.

These are absolutely delicious! Radhika has prepared them for one of my previous wine dinners and they were a hit! I have made them myself a few times too (they are very simple to prepare) and the warming spice and light texture works very well with this particular orange wine.
