Our New Beaujolais Guide: What is Natural Wine? And where did it come from?

Our New Beaujolais Guide: What is Natural Wine? And where did it come from?

20 years ago, “natural wine” was the freaky stuff drunk after-hours in Williamsburg and the East Village. Today, collectors around the world chase bottles of natural wine as passionately as DRC – and pay top dollar for some of them.

Where did natural wine come from, and how did it spread so far and so fast? 

In a word: Beaujolais

Beaujolais Blog Bonanza! We can't get enough!

Beaujolais has been a hit at Flatiron wines since we opened. 

It's the perfect wine for us -- or the perfect wineS, since really, Beaujolais means a so many different things--from the festive Beaujolais Nouveau and Beaujolais wines we like to crush with friends, to the beautifully expressive Beaujolais Villages, right on up to the exceptional, terroir-specific Crus.

Everything you need to know about the Wachau!

Everything you need to know about the Wachau!

The Wachau Valley is the epicenter of Austria’s greatest wines. In fact, to many wine consumers, the wines of the Wachau are the wines of Austria. 

While that sentiment sells Austria short, ignoring many diverse and excellent wine regions, it’s not baseless. The Wachau’s vineyards, defined 1,000 years ago by local monks, are known for producing some of the world’s greatest white wines.

The NY Times' Summer Sparkling Wines: Crémants, Pét-Nats and More

We spotted a recent column in the New York Times from the esteemed Eric Asimov — a column encouraging readers to celebrate even the mundane with 12 bottles of fizzy wine, and not a Champagne among them.

Barolo Breakdown: Part 4, Castiglione is here!

Barolo Breakdown: Part 4, Castiglione is here!

Here, you have wines that have intense structure and aromas – of course, as this is Barolo! – but also poise.  Maybe it doesn’t quite strike you as strongly on that first sip, as do wines from some other villages. But elegance is like that. Get to the end of the first glass and you will be thoroughly persuaded to pour yourself a second.

Barolo Breakdown, Part 3 is here!

These vineyards only make up about 10% of the DOC Barolo, but they make a far larger percentage of the best known wine, and 100% of the village is entitled to produce Nebbiolo called Barolo. The swathe of Crus that contain the name “Cannubi” produce some of the world’s greatest Nebbiolo. This is a bit like all those Crus in Vosne that contain the word “Romanee”.  But at like one fifth of the price.
