The winemaker story
Domaine Les Terres Promises, which translates to "The Promised Lands," is a small organic winery nestled in the back country of Provence, France, at an elevation of 400m.
Although Carignan Blanc grapes are notoriously challenging to cultivate, winemaker Jean-Christophe Comor expertly produces delectable wines that make it seem effortless.
With a strong passion forsustainable and eco-friendly winemaking, the vines are nourished using biodynamic techniques that work in harmony with nature. Jean-Christophe prioritizes preserving the grapes' flavor and freshness, from the vineyards to the cellar. One sip of his Orange wine is enough to appreciate its unique character and bold flavors that are intimately linked to the terroir.
I'm not usually an orange wine person BUT, this one from Bondle is hands down the BEST orange wine I've ever had in my life! 10/10!!!
