Dry, light and fruity! To 'glou' is to chug, which is what you will be tempted to do with this refreshing organic Gamay from the Rhone Valley.

Founded in 1984 by current proprietor Jean Delobre’s grandfather, the estate is covered in vines, orchards and fields of grain. Over the years, acre by acre, the estate was converted to organic farming, and today Jean cultivates seven hectares of certified organic Syrah, Roussane, Marsanne, Gamay and Viognier. La Ferme des Sept Lunes is comprised of a patchwork of vineyards ranging in vine age and composition, all on a bedrock of granite. The terraced Saint Joseph vineyards below the converted barn-winery are majestic in their biodiversity. Wildflowers and grasses grow in and around the vines, and the occasional iris adds a vibrant pop of color. In Jean’s words, “a vineyard is a big garden” and he is clearly a devoted caretaker with a very green thumb. In the early years, the family sold fruit to the local co-op. Over time, Jean became disenchanted, recognizing that a personal vision was taking shape and would not be fulfilled by his current model. After founding a “bio” (organic) group at the cooperative, Jean was inspired to begin producing his own wines where he could control quality at every stage.
