Two beautiful wines that just happen to be the colour palette for our summer mood board: a bright, textured orange and super juicy light red, the perfect intro to all that Populis & Les Lunes has to offer.

Mendocino County, USA | A light, textured, skin-contact wine that is super drinkable and feels like Chardonnay’s second cousin who grew up on a commune. While winemakers Shaunt Oungoulian & Diego Roig, make wines for Les Lunes by farming older & historic leased vineyards in Napa & Sonoma, their Populis project is made using purchased grapes from historic vineyards & multi-generational growers in Mendocino County, located just north of Sonoma. Their production facility is located in the basement of Shaunt’s parents’ house, allowing them space free from other wineries’ yeasts / influence as well as space to age multiple vintages if they deem it necessary before release. This is skin-contact LITE - easy, crushable, an orange wine for times when you don't feel like food but still want to nourish your soul.

Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, Sangiovese, Chenin Blanc & Colombard, Sonoma Valley, USA | Wow! This wine is composed of such a ragtag gang of wildly divergent wine grapes, like when you have a birthday party & all your different friend groups get mixed in with your co-workers and, like, your cousins, and you’re kind of freaking out about whether everyone’s going to get along, but then the next thing you know your boss & childhood best friend are having a really intense conversation about life while your aunt & hairstylist do a karaoke duet & everything’s groovy! Adding further depth to this metaphor, every grape in the blend is vinified separately & using entirely different techniques before finally coming together for aging in a mixture of high-density polyethylene and neutral French oak barrels. Gossamer & ethereal, this is a focused, sprightly red that you just want to carry around in your pocket like the little ruby angel it is. Focused core of raspberry fruit leather, cold-pressed beet juice, & cherry coke (made with syrup at a diner), with a hint of spice from Sangiovese & shimmering Chenin texture. Zinfandels can often take up all the space in the room but this one just flutters about like a pixie, floral and cool.
