The Dubard family craft fine terroir-driven wines from the rolling hills of clay and limestone found in the Southwest of France. They have always been known for their meticulous farmering, with a commitment to vine health that was recently recognized by the French government’s HEV (high environmental value) certification. This new certification covers biodiversity conservation, plant protection strategy, management of fertilizer use, and management of water. Winemaking is fastidiously traditional, with long gentle presses, indigenous yeasts for the fermentations, and stainless steel used for the elevage. From the citrus and mineral-infused Sauvignon Blanc to the delicate and lacy rose, the wines are consistently delicious and over-deliver for their humble price tags.
