We're going to shamelessly let you in on the caliber of our nerdiness here, and share our excitement in hearing Pascaline Lepeltier (the first woman to earn France's coveted Best Sommelier, and a bit of a hero around here) continually espouse the virtues of wine from Southwest France. We've been waving the SW France indigenous grapes flag for awhile here at EDW, having sent many of you home with your first Braucol or Duras. So it's satistfying to hear a wine celebrity rave about how Gaillac is impressively diverse and wines from this region should get more attention! (We can suggest podcasts if you'd like to join us in nerd-town).

Made by a 5th generation Gaillac winemaker, who also happens to be a falconer (!), this blend is a lovely example of the range this region can accomplish. With a combination of clay-limestone and gravel soils, the indigenous Ondenc grows rich and ripe here along the banks of the Tarn River, while the noble varietal Sauvignon Blanc stays lean and aromatic. The result is a dry but shapely white wine, perfect for a hearty meal.

Food Ideas: seared scallops in calabrian chili oil, cardoon gratin, white bean stew w/fresh herb pistou, turkey tortilla soup
