' Pech Merle - Process

Process

Our Winemaker, John Pepe has a passion for the earth, is meticulous about the process and is adept at balancing the elements of each changing season.

"My methods allow the grapes to speak for themselves. Over the centuries the varietals we use have proven themselves in producing superior wines. There is nothing I can do to improve on that other than usher the process along in such a way that gives each wine its maximum expression of virtue. Low impact, gentle processing, thoughtful decision making, meticulous methodology – this is how great wines are made."
