Notes from the Importer: Polycutlural farming has been foundational to the family philosophy since before Jean Delobre founded Ferme des Sept Lunes on this hilltop farm in the Saint Joseph village of Bogy. While the fruit trees remain, today the traditional Northern Rhône varieties of Syrah, Roussane, Marsanne, and Viognier, along with a bit of Gamay are farmed organically across a patchwork of vineyards ranging in vine age and composition, all on a bedrock of granite.
Jean’s commitment to purity carries through to the cellar where he produces both Saint Joseph and Vin de Pays appellations. In an effort to express the individual characteristics of each terroir, parcels are vinified separately and little or no sulfur is used in vinification.
The Ferme des Sept Lunes wines (and life-changing apricot juice!) have an energy, freshness, and depth of flavor that have earned the farm a cult following.
