Winemakers Featured in Cellar Case
Benoît and Mélanie Tarlant are the brother/sister team behind this 12th generation Champagne house, started in 1687. During the early 20th century their ancestor Louis Tarlant was part of the Champagne Revolution, and instrumental in creating the AOC Champagne region, as well as developing one of the first independent estates in Champagne. Benoît and Mélanie's father Jean-Mary began the move to natural Champagne in the 1970's, and they currently have 14 fully biodynamic hectares to their name.
Isaac and Manuel Cantalapiedra
Castilla y Leon, Spain
The Cantalapiedra's current estate was planted and built in 1949 by Heliodoro Cantalapiedra at the age of 15. Because the land has been worked organically and without irrigation for so long, the grapes are of the highest quality with bright acidity. Grandson Manuel is a classically trained pianist, and his artistic nature shows through the delicately produced terroir driven wines of the Cantalapiedra estate.
Friuli Venezia Giulia, Italy
Franco Terpin started as a livestock farmer in the 1970s and incorporated vines thereafter, bottling his first vintage in 1994. He reached full organic certification in 2011 and has worked closely with Biodynamic consultant Michel Barbaud to create a fully circular farm. His orange wines have become representative of the region and his long maceration style creates wines with immense depth and expression.
Claude-Emmanuelle and Louis-Benoît are 8th generation winemakers of the Desvignes family, and first to be certified organic. When your last name translates as "of the vines," winemaking is more than a lifestyle; the family's history is intrinsically tied to land. They are one of the leading Beaujolais estates in the coveted Morgon appellation. The Desvignes focus specifically on age-worthy wines. They are both a piece of history, and a precursor of the future.
Lorenzo Corino was an icon in the natural wine world, a 5th generation winemaker whose spirit, kindness, and sense of beauty permeated his wines. Lorenzo spent his life working for the Italian government on soil regeneration and began making wine in 1967. His secret… go slowly with intention. You are on nature’s time, not your own. His wines are subtle, yet incredibly complex. He sadly passed away in 2021, but his children Guido and Luisa have taken over and will continue the sublime legacy of the Corino family.
