Heard from the grape vine
A negociant wine from Domaine Brand & Fils. The Gamay grapes are harvested by Philippe and his team from their partner winemaker located in Blacé in Beaujolais while the Pinot Noir is harvested from his neighbour's vineyards just a stone's throw from his. The grapes are vinified and aged separately at Domaine Brand & Fils blended just before bottling. 

With reference to Aesop's the tortoise and the hare fable, go slow and steady take a few bottles of the the la tortue or the tortoise if you'd wanna last the night, if you only have time for a bottle go with le lievre or the hare.

Intrigue it with...
In both cases both wines are extremely juicy and easy to drink with notes of cranberries and black currant serve them cold and drink them by the poolside on its own.

*Natural wines like La Tortue are unfiltered and might appear cloudy, this is intended by the winemaker and does not negatively affect the wine's quality.

Founded in 1956, Domaine Brand & Fils started off as a farm that prioritised crops such as wheat, tobacco and pastures for livestock. Fast forward to 2001, the brand is all about pushing the boundaries of natural wine having been certified as biodynamic by Demeter. Led by Philippe, a third-generation winemaker, the brand values family which is why you’ll always see everyone from the winery having their lunch together daily. We were even privileged enough to join them during our second ever visit in the harvest season of 2021 where we stuffed ourselves with a large assortment of cheese and local cuisine. Salut Domaine Brand & Fils.
