Cellar for up to 5 years. Serve chilled.

Brendan Tracey’s French heritage called him back to his mother’s native country after a decade spent playing in punk bands in California. In 1980 he moved back to the country permanently with his new wife and fully embraced the French lifestyle. It was only in 2010 that he founded his own winery, which in characteristic punk style embraces maverick winemaking methods and some quirky label designs that he creates himself.

Today Brendan sources organically-grown grapes from partner growers in the Loire and his own vineyards, using a rustic former tax collection barn as his winery. He produces a vast array of wines in tiny quantities, including this unusual white made from the local Orbois grape which has sadly fallen out of favour in recent years.

As with his other wines, Brendan uses wild yeasts for the fermentation to showcase the natural varietal character. The young wine is bottled without adding any sulphites and with no fining or filtering. This creates a youthful and dynamic white that’s bursting with ripe peaches, melon, and lemon zest notes on the nose along with deeper notes of dried herbs like oregano and thyme on the palate. Ideal for pairing with seafood, fish, or creamy cheeses.
