Pineau d’Aunis, Loire Valley, France

Sommeliers and natural wine nerds alike are obsessed with Pineau d’Aunis, a deep cut of a red grape from the Loire Valley. Normally, it drinks like the lovechild of Pinot Noir and Syrah: light, peppery and a touch herbaceous, something you’d have with steak frites in a dimly lit French bistro. But being Bobinet, all is not what it seems! Balanced perfectly between gnarly & natty and clean & c. . .

Pineau d’Aunis, Loire Valley, France

Sommeliers and natural wine nerds alike are obsessed with Pineau d’Aunis, a deep cut of a red grape from the Loire Valley. Normally, it drinks like the lovechild of Pinot Noir and Syrah: light, peppery and a touch herbaceous, something you’d have with steak frites in a dimly lit French bistro. But being Bobinet, all is not what it seems! Balanced perfectly between gnarly & natty and clean & classy, Aunis is more like the wildchild red who shed their former life as a lesser Pinot to live a lawless, truly free life as a pop star, prestige be damned! From 35 year old vines on a single vineyard, this was carbonically macerated and aged for five months in barrel, just enough winemaking to make it to bottle basically! Spritzy & cola-esque like an original apothecary version of Dr Pepper, watermelon seed, cherry pastille, Finnish rye bread with a thick layer of lingonberry preserves, wet leaf & a sprinkle of white pepper like perfect summertime freckles. Grippy tannins for such a light wine, backed by confit kirsch & maraschino vibes. If you can’t make it to France, we recommend serving Aunis slightly chilled or hella chilled for rooftop hangs paired with grocery store charc & cheese because you’re not fussy and neither is Aunis.

We don't know if you've heard this, but Canada is a truly WILD place to import wine. Each province is it's own country with super strict rules. For ages, so much of the very best natural wine never made it into the province. That is changing in such an exciting way. We started our own import company to bring you some of our very favourite wines from around the world at the sharpest prices - this allows us to travel, fall in love with a wine, and bring right to your doorstep without a middle person. Put simply, as the importer, we shave one layer off the supply chain. We offer these sweet wholesale discounts when you bundle. From 1, 3 to 6 packs you'll find serious savings. The GWI sticker - Grape Witch Imports - means not only that we strongly stand behind the producer, it also means you won't find a better deal anywhere else in town. It also allows us to source many wines just for the shop - you'll find Ontario exclusives marked GWIE - Grape Witch Import Exclusive.
