These wines look different, taste different, feel different. To put it simply, the wines of Mathieu Deiss are transcendent. He has made it his mission to redefine the wines of Alsace, France's historic northeastern region, an area with a complicated territorial history. Fought over by Germany and France, Alsace is unique, sort of like a pretzel-baguette.
Today he still makes wines at his father's renowned winery, Domaine Marcel Deiss. However in 2013, wanting a break from his family's tradition-bound wines, he began Le Vignoble du Rêveur (The Dreamer's Vineyard). His new wines are made with grapes from 7 hectares of vines inherited from his maternal grandfather. They encapsulate the very freedom and revolution that his grandfather worked so hard for.
These wines have become some of our most anticipated releases over the years. Completely singular and unforgettable. Never subtle, these are wines that are bright, flavorful and full of life.
"It’s time to take back the right to dream, to construct a future without limits, to reinvent wine and its' definition, to break the rules, move walls and open our eyes, to decide that anything is possible!"
Le Vignoble du Rêveur is a celebration of freedom, life, and the connection between man and nature. Over the past seven years Mathieu has transformed his vineyards, following organic and biodynamic practices.
This week we are excited to be featuring two of our newest arrivals from this poetic young winemaker. While the style of these wines may be 'unusual' for the region, they exude laser-like precision and terroir driven focus; qualities we admire so much in classic Alsatian wines.
Vignoble du Rêveur 'Artisan' 2018 $29.99
A skin-contact blend of 60% Pinot Gris and 40% Gewürztraminer that takes Alsatian wines to new heights. A fresh, lively cuvée which leaps out of the glass, this slightly carbonic wine is just brilliant! This cuvée has quite unusual aromas of apricots and white flowers. Full-bodied on the palate, fleshy peaches and plums explode over your tastebuds, balancing perfectly with a bright and slightly tannic finish. Dry, ripe, complex and fresh; this is a youthful, energetic wine with the softness of an old soul. It is absolutely stunning and wildly intriguing.
Vignoble du Rêveur 'Un instant sur Terre' 2018 $39.99
This whole cluster blend of Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, and a touch of Riesling is one of the most profound wines we have had in quite some time. Aged 11 months in amphorae, including 8 months on the skins, this orange wine sparks memories of our beloved Radikon. Floral and red citrus aromas with asian spice and exotic fruits. Balanced by cleansing acidity, minerals and elegant tannins that add to the complexity and length of this wine. A fascinating wine that will elevate any Asian or Indian meal.
