We first met Jean Marc Dreyer from the village of Rosheim in Alsace a number of years ago at a winter salon in the tiny village of Glaine-Montaigut in the hills to the east of the Auvergne city of Clermont-Ferrand.
It is a small salon, but we always meet interesting vignerons there and Jean Marc was no exception. We were incredibly impressed with the purity of his wines and his work with maceration that lifted the wines to another level.
Based on this tasting we asked him if he was interested in working with us and he agreed, but he didn’t have much wine to sell us at the time and also we think he wanted us to come to see him first, which is not uncommon amongst the winemakers we work with.
In the past twelve months we have visited him in his village of Rosheim twice and tasted the wines again and we are now in a position receive an allocation from the 2018 wines which we expect to arrive later this year.
We will post details of the wines that we will have available when this vintage is over and Jean Marc is able to process our order.
