There is firm empirical evidence to the effect that yeast & other varied wine pathogens die of boredom unless given an interesting environment within which to practice their art. This tautological proposition holds its deepest truth when sun & stone, vine & grape undergo fundamental transmutation into fine elixir via the agency of wild yeast & other similarly feral beasties, rather than through the effete & banal interaction of commercial strains of their distant freeze dried brethren, the latter being so boringly predictable. Thus, at Le Cuvier the entire process of wine making is left to the wild beasties, while all human interaction is firmly dedicated to making life interesting & nothing more.
And what does one gain from this evanescent approach to wine making? Curious synergy for one thing, but most assuredly and unequivocally, one begets rarefied wines peppered through & through with gnarly character, wines of fervor, wines which make themselves from grapes of impeccable quality & breeding grown in locations both steep & rough in the limestone hills west of Paso Robles.
Le Cuvier wines are preferentially reserved for purchase by members of our wine club, the Elliptical Society. Since the wild Beasties produce no more than 3,141 cases per year, our wines tend to all be gobbled up by Elliptical members in fairly short order. That said, non members (AKA, the Unwashed Masses) are nonetheless welcome to visit & taste with us.
