Variety: Grolleau 

As the wine world talks about Catherine and Pierre Breton, one will hear them referenced as "real life bon vivants vignerons." I love this description so much as it perfectly captures the soul of this married couple. From the beginning, they have truly wanted to have fun in life and to make unadulterated natural wines long before the hipness of the natural wine scene took hold. Recently, they started the three-year process of seeking biodynamic certification. In fact, they have become international icons for the natural wine movement in an area where the climate and soil can make organic practices difficult. They are based in Bourgueil in the Loire Valley and have an impressive spread of vineyards ranging in soils and vine age. One might say the innovative couple is well ahead of the game and doing it with charm and grace. 

Grolleau is one of the varieties from the Loire Valley simply flying under the radar. It is light and fruity, not unlike Gamay. This comes from 60 year old vines and is treated similarly to Beaujolais as it undergoes three weeks of carbonic maceration.
