A GOOD PAIRING - Antoine Favero & Diane Wilson

In creating the new deLorimier wines wine maker Antoine Favero works closely with owner and wine maker Diane Wilson. Both agree that the wines need to capture the spirit of the vineyard. To do this, they use winemaking techniques such as cold soaking and employ traditional French techniques such as pigeage (punch down), remontage (pump over) and extended maceration, utilizing indigenous yeast whenever possible. This elevates flavors and captures the essence of the grapes.  With two award winning wine makers creating the wines keep an eye on this winery as it is sure to be a huge success.
