If you struggle to understand the cosmic nature of Biodynamic farming (like we do) Paul Barre is a devout disciple and speaks about it beautifully: “If the earth is the support for the expression of the plant, the creative forces of this plant come from the outside…the cosmos. Biodynamic agriculture argues for the plant at the heart of the universe.” Still nothing? Well, at least his wine speaks for itself — ‘Aux Caudelayres’ is complex and elegant, with plush fruit and wild herbs. Drink now with a good steak.

Tullia is another of our all-time favorite dry-yet-fruity affordable bubbles! Straw yellow in color, with an intensely fruity and fresh bouquet reminiscent of spear wood flowers, wisteria, wild apple, and mountain honey, plus a fine and persistent perlage... honestly, what’s not to love about it?
