MORE ABOUT JEAN-PHILIPPE BOURGEOIS:
Philippe Bourgeois, wine importer based out of Asheville, NC is a veteran supplier of sustainable and organic wines from small family vineyards across the major growing regions in France. Phillipe grew up in the Northern Rhone region of France, learning the business while surrounded by some of the world’s best producers. Now with twenty years of importing to the United States under his belt, JP Bourgeois focuses solely on handcrafted, sustainable, and organic wineries in France and Spain, and happens to import some of our favorite bottles! In the upcoming tasting we will focus on Rhône producer Domaine de Chateaumar's line.
Castel Mar (Chateaumar) estate dates back to the 11th century. This father and son run estate has always had the greatest respect for nature. After generations of sustainable farming with no herbicides or pesticides, the wines speak to their terroir with focus, elegance, and lift.
