Join us as we welcome special guest Anne-Charlotte Mélia Bachas, Winemaker of Château de la Font du Loup! Elegance is not the current incarnation of mainstream Châteauneuf-du-Pape however, there are those who have bet it all on elegance and finesse, like Anne-Charlotte has. Font du Loup (Fountain of the Wolf) is located on the north side of the famous plateau, La Crau. On this side, the vineyards are almost purely sand with the cooler north face which define these incredible wines. The future of Font du Loup looks bright, given Anne-Charlotte's desire to exploit her ancient vines  and practice a more natural way of winemaking. Don't miss these special wines perfect for your Thanksgiving feast & beyond!
