The Lost Vines

Les Clos Perdus = The Lost Vineyard. Tucked away throughout the hills and valleys of Languedoc are vineyards, many with old vines, that have been forgotten due to the inability to machine harvest or the low yields that come naturally to very old vineyards. Paul Old & Hugo Stewart spent years seeking these gems and in 2003 began making wine out of a modest garage. This wine is mostly 80-100 year old Grenache with some Mourvèdre thrown in. Red currant. Roasted herbs. Cracked pepper. Honest earth (we kid you not). An excellent $20 bottle of wine. #renegadewines #santabarbara #winenerd #sb #sommlife #winetasting #wineporn #seesb #trustyourpalate #montecito #sbcwine #seriousjuice #winetime #winegeeks #winewednesday #funkzone #centralcalifornia #foodiesofsb #zagat #sommelier #805
