2022 Domaine de Fontsainte ‘Gris de Gris’ Corbieres Rosé
Though part of the appeal of Fontsainte’s Gris de Gris is that it’s so drinkable on its own—with just a beach read, its adaptability to food only bolsters its charm. Try is with some salty cheese or simply some crudités.
Sustainable farming practices
2021 Cantine di Marzo Fiano di Avellino DOCG
This is Margaux’s favorite wine of all time. Fiano is perfection. This grape grows just an hour from the Amalfi Coast and it embodies the citrus fruit and sea breeze of the region. Dry, light, refreshing and easy to enjoy.
Certified sustainable, hand-harvested, members of the independent winegrowers association, vegan, and less than 700 cases produced.
2013 Domaine Bohn Alsace Lieu-Dit Schieferberg Dry Riesling
Gourmet wine with a fine and fiery acidity, supported by its mineral and iodized patina. This riesling from the father son duo is one of great freshness and finesse.
Organic farming practices, native yeast fermentation, no fining, coarse filtering, and no added sulfur, vegan-friendly, and less than 300 cases produced!
2018 E. Pira Chiara Boschis ‘Mosconi’ Barolo
From 3 hectares at 400 meters above sea level, Chiara’s Barolo Mosconi emanates deep concentration, rich structure, and power. Aged for 24 months in barrel and an additional year in bottle.
Certified organic farming practices, woman-winemaker, and only 800 cases produced annually.

Sustainable farming practices, hand-harvested, and native yeast fermentation.
2016 Massimago Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG
Made from select grapes from a single vineyard situated on a hilltop at 350 meters above sea level. It is the best expression of Massimago. Vertical, full-bodied, complex – it is a pure, traditional Amarone.
Certified organic farming practices, hand-harvested, native yeast fermentation, minimal sulfur addition, woman-winemaker.
2021 Massimago ‘Duca Fedele’ Valpolicella DOC
This lighter bodied example of Valpolicella helps us transition from the lemon butter sauces of summer, to the red sauce/creamy mushroom sauces of fall. The bright red fruit keeps it refreshing, while the savory and herbal elements give it depth. This is our gaux-to Italian red for the season.
Certified organic farming practices, hand-harvested, native yeast fermentation, minimal sulfur addition, woman-winemaker, and only 1,250 cases produced.
2020 Domaine Rougeot ‘Les Grandes Gouttes’ Côte D’Or Bourgogne Blanc
We call this “Petit Puligny.” While the vineyard sits only 500 meters from the Meursault-Charmes premier cru vineyard, the wine has a lighter, racier profile and a beautiful minerality that makes it taste more reminiscent of Puligny-Montrachet than Meursault. The production level is tiny, so we are extremely excited to be able to offer this wine exclusively to our Club Argaux members.
Organic farming practices, hand-harvested, native yeast fermentation, unfined and only 100 cases produced.
2020 Domaine Rougeot Père et Fils Saint-Romain ‘La Combe Bazin’
This could be considered the “sleeper” hit wine from Rougeot. It’s round and creamy with subtle acidity and delicate minerality. This drinks well above its price point.
Organic and biodynamic farming practices, hand-harvested, native yeast fermentation, unfined/unfiltered, and vegan-friendly!
2021 Domaine de Oliveira Lecestre Petit Chablis (half-bottle)
This is an everyday staple. The palate is lively and crisp, but it isn’t quite as austere as other versions of Chablis. It has a creamy texture which makes it approachable and crowd-pleaser across the board.
Sustainable farming practices (Lutte Raisonnée), native yeast fermentation, and fermented in stainless steel tanks to reflect the perfect typicity of Chablis.
2019 Domaine Alain Burguet Gevrey-Chambertin ‘Les Champeaux’ Premier Cru
This wine is for a Pinot Noir oenophile.
The ‘Les Champeaux’ premier cru vineyard was planted in 1987 on the northern edge of Gevrey-Chambertin. It’s located high up on the slope with south-east facing exposure which allows for slow and steady ripening. The result is a wine with great purity, structure and incredibly silky tannins.
Biodynamic farming practices, hand-harvested, native yeast fermentation, unfined/unfiltered, vegan-friendly, and only 75 cases produced.
2020 Crazy Creatures Kremstal Gruner Veltliner
This is a team favorite that we had to bring back for the launch of club. It’s bright, fresh, citrus-driven and our gaux-to pairing with sushi or Thai pairing!
Organic farming practices, dry-farmed, hand-harvested, and native yeast fermentation.
2020 Les Athlètes du Vin Touraine Sauvignon Blanc
You really can’t go wrong with this wine. It’s a no-brainer for Sauvignon Blanc lovers. The bright citrus fruits have length without any bitter finish. Think of it as Sancerres more affordable little sister.
Organic farming practices, hand-harvested, native yeast fermentation, unfined/unfiltered, vegan-friendly, and only 3,500 cases produced.
2021 Domaine Guillaume Pin Savoie Apremont
This wine drinks like premier cru white burgundy for the price of Sancerre. Sign. Me. Up.
Organic farming practices and only 150 cases produced.
2021 Field Recordings Dry Hop Pet Nat
Dry Hop Pét Nat was Andrew’s first foray into the Pét Nat revolution. This is 100% Chardonnay that is pressed and racked directly onto Mosaic hops in a large stainless steel tank. The creation of this wine requires perfect timing and great attention to detail. We think he nailed it – Pet Nat meets Sour Beer – citrus for days.
Organic farming practices, native yeast fermentation, no added sulfur, & only 600 cases produced.
2021 Herd & Hart Western Cape Sauvignon Blanc
This Sauvy B is incredibly refreshing. It has bright citrus fruit and florals, but finishes off with a touch of salty ocean sea breeze that reminds you it’s from the Western Cape.
Sustainable farming practices, minimal intervention winemaking, and only 112 cases produced.
2018 Domaine Alain Burguet Gevrey-Chambertin ‘Mes Favorites’
The most striking thing about this Pinot Noir is how smooth and soft the palate is. This is a very approachable burgundy. It’s ready to drink now, but will continue to age beautifully over the next 10 years.
Practicing organic viticulture, converting to biodynamic, hand-harvested, native yeast fermentation, unfined/unfiltered and only 2,250 cases produced.
2020 Viña Cartin Rías Baixas Albariño
Quintessential is the only word I can use to describe this wine. It comes from the ancestral home of Albariño, located directly on Spain’s Atlantic coast. It’s bright and refreshing… a solid weeknight staple.
Sustainable farming practices and hand-harvested.
2022 Domaine Jean-Jacques Auchére Sancerre Blanc
A classic Sancerre!
The Auchère family’s winemaking tradition has been passed from grandfather to father to son for generations. At the head of the family estate, Jean-Jacques Auchère focuses on quality, only producing 2,500 cases annually from the best sustainably-farmed vineyard sites in Sancerre.
2021 Storm Duvarita Vineyard Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir
The Duvarita vineyard is six miles from the Pacific Ocean, making it one of the closest to the ocean in Santa Barbara County. It produces incredibly lean and silky Pinot Noir that we CANNOT get enough of.
Biodynamic farming practices, no fining or filtering, vegan-friendly, and only 100 cases produced.
2021 Cherrier Frères Sancerre Blanc ‘Les Renarderies’ (half-bottle)
It’s Sancerre – need we say more? Sancerre is the king of all Sauvignon Blanc. It’s consistent, classic and never disappoints. Cherrier Frères Sancerre delivers exactly what you want: a lively, zesty, crisp and delicious white wine.
Organic farming practices, and native yeast fermentation in stainless steel tanks.
2019 Casa Vinicola Triacca ‘Gaux Dopo’ Nebbiolo
This Alpine Nebbiolo is energetic, zippy, and remarkably fresh. The stainless steel fermentation maintains the wine’s bright fruit character, floral quality, and natural suppleness.
Sustainable farming practices and only 100 cases produced!
NV Weingut Leitz Eins Zwei Zero Sparkling Wine (Non-Alcoholic)
Finally, we have found a non-alcoholic wine that has flavor, minerality, acid and texture. This isn’t just sparkling water – it’s a sparkling wine with a sense of place that just happens to have 0.0% ABV.
Certified sustainable viticulture by FAIR’N GREEN, a recognized system for sustainability in Germany, covering areas of environmental protection and social responsibility.
2021 Weingut Griesbauerhof Alto Adige Pinot Grigio
Pinot Grigio from the Alps is in a completely different bracket than the rest of Italian Pinot Grigio. It drinks like Chablis, with the texture and saline tinge you get from high alpine whites. We promise you, this ain’t your average bottle of PG.
Organic farming practices, hand-harvested, native yeast fermentation and only 150 cases produced.
