Pinard & Filles
These show-stopping Quebec wines are a lesson in overcoming adversity (freezing winter temps), believing in the underdog (hybrid grapes), taking no shortcuts (no additives & meticulous farming) & being uniquely one’s (delicious) self.
EASTERN TOWNSHIPS TRIUMPHANT'S
Buzzy Quebec wine heroes Pinard & Filles, AKA husband & wife team Frederic Simon and Catherine Belanger, make rugged and ethereal natural wines previously only available in the most too-cool-for-school wine bars of Montreal and New York. Yes, you heard us— the hypest natural wines of the decade are made in the Eastern Townships of Quebec (of all places!) These beauties MORE than live up to their accompanying hype. Former restauranteurs Simon & Belanger adhere to strict standards of minimal intervention in their winemaking practice, always prioritizing character, aesthetic and ideology over profit—even though some cuvées yield less than 100 bottles, each run features a label designed by artist Marc Séguin. The wines themselves are just as artful: thought-provoking and introspective, yet undeniably, endlessly quaffable.
