Brothers Gilles and Thierry Faravel make wine in some of the most weirdly beautiful geography in all of France: in Gigondas, one of the crû villages of the southern Rhone Valley and in the very shadow of the rocky outcropping known as the Dentelles of Montmirail.
Wine Buyer Stephen recommends a perfect holiday pair — Perbellini Panettone and frothy Torelli “Di Michela” Asti Spumanti!
Our Wine Team offers their top picks for the wines they’re most excited to give this holiday season.
As the seasons change we look forward to some of our most decadently delicious cheeses of the year. The perfect pair for these lavish, richly-textured delights is the biscuity, toasted depth of Montbourgeau Crémant du Jura.
Less known than Barolo and Barbaresco, the Alto-Piemonte (Upper Piemonte) is home to some equally amazing Nebbiolo wines. The Vallana family’s vineyard produces particularly elegant and charming bottles.
Crafted by the Courrèges family on France’s “Île de Beauté,” this Corsican red wine is wonderful with seared lamb chops and roasted Brussels sprouts.
