Christine Dupuy. having just finished oenology school, had to take over her father's winery at the age of 23, after he suddenly passed away. That first year, all her neighbors pitched in to help with the harvest, in gratitude for all her Father had done for the region of Madiran, the birthplace of Tannat. Christine has become an accomplished farmer and winemaker in her own right, converting her vineyards to organic cultivation, and experimenting with winemaking techniques. This is your coziest wool sweater bundled up next to a fire kind-of-wine, perfect for hearty roasts, and (alas, it's coming) Virginia's notorious second winter.
