Have you ever been introduced to something completely alien to you, something you’ve never heard of before that’s swept you off your feet in a whirlwind of emotions and feelings? Maybe it was the first time you heard of and bought a certain clothing brand that fits your body size like a glove. It could have been that exact moment when you heard the whining, melodic sound of Oasis as a band for the very first time. …

Collaboration and surprise, that’s what this world is made of and if Beaujolais-based Jules Chauvet the natural wine don, met New York City-based fictional mafioso Don Vito Corleone, that would be the exact quote I’d pull out of their legendary conversation.
Who Was Jules Chauvet?
So, Jules Chauvet, who is this guy in the same sentence as the one and only Don Vito Corleone from The Godfather?
Jules throughout his life was a maker of wine, a seller of wine, and according to many accounts from his generation one of the most profound tasters of wine…

Drinking natural wine is a cleaner, more ethical alternative to any other wine on the market.
It isn’t everywhere just yet, but you can feel and blatantly see it’s ready to rise into vogue. Natural wine, in short, is a wine made from organic, hand-picked grapes. It’s a wine that has nothing added to it and nothing is taken away from it in the winemaking procedure. That means minimal human intervention, no help from chemicals or additives and no stripping the wine of its integrity by mass filtration or fining.
It’s a raw, living product.
Natural wine is a healthier…
Joiseph’s name comes from a playful take on the Austrian village in which they are from, Jois! It is situated on the mountain of Leitha overlooking an amazing view of Lake Neusiedl.

Fresh red fruit flavours are instantly what came to mind when drinking this wine, similar to juicy in-season strawberries – a slight…

Natural wine is something that’s been in the area for a few years now, and in the country for that little bit longer, but, only now, is it receiving the traction and praise that in our opinion, it deserved a lot sooner.
The three people who contributed to…
Have you ever found yourself feeling stupid or misinformed for not knowing the difference between Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio? Should you prefer Pinot Gris over Pinot Grigio, or does that even matter?
Well, you are not alone. Every wine drinker has asked themselves the same question for years now.
Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio are both the same white wine grape variety with a grey-bronze/pink skin. The grape comes from France originally where it’s most cultivated in Alsace, known most commonly only as ‘Pinot Gris’.
Although originating in France, the variety has been brought into light by the Italians…
