We collaborated with a very special farmer family in the South of France to make this unpretentious, crushable, chillable (if you like), daytime, weeknight, go-to, completely organic, very old vine deliciousness just for us, for you.

Colline de l'hirondelle is a very old biodynamic farm in a tiny town within Corbieres and home to the oldest vineyard in the village. Planted at the end of the 19th century, it miraculously escaped phylloxera and the uprooting of old vines that has plagued the Languedoc; this tiny one-acre plot is a conservatory of rare and disappearing varieties. A local vine scientist has identified the following 13 varieties: Carignan noir, Grenache noir, Cinsault noir, Mourrastel Boucher noir, Rivairenc noir, Grand Noir de la Calmette, Mourvèdre noir, Terret noir, Terret gris, Terret blanc, Olivette blanche, Chasselas doré, Valencin rose and two mysterious varieties are still unidentified.
