Regular priceSale price
Methode Sauvage was started in 2013 by the homie, Chad Hines with the idea in mind to showcase Cali Chenin Blanc and Cab Franc. Chad began planting and working his own vines in 2018 in the style of Masanobu Fukuoka- a cool natty Japanese dude who believes in hands off, no till, full on organic farming. He's got a hankering for Alpine wine styles and varietals.
The term 'Giallo' refers to the pulp horror films coming out of Italy in the 60s, 70s and 80s. It's an Alpine wine with reference to the aromatic varieties and high altitudes of Italy. Teroldego, Nebbiolo and Refosco from high elevation sites in Cali. Pretty, soft, aromatic, foresty and herbal. The 'Giallo' of a hot young Italian man found running through the Alps on a warm summer day. Maybe he'll spare you, but maybe he'll eat you alive.
