2020 Mont de Marie Anathème Rouge
The 2020 Mont de Marie Anathème Rouge is a gorgeous medium-bodied red from a natural winemaker working with old vines of indigenous southern French grapes. A blend of Aramon, Cinsault, and Carignan. The vineyards are farmed organically without herbicides or insecticides, only copper-sulfur applications to fight mildew. Carbonic maceration with indigenous yeast for the fermentation. Bottled unfined and unfiltered and without added sulfites.
Mont de Marie is Thierry Forestier, a former IT consultant who in 2002 decided on a life change; to work with the land. His family had previously been farmers in the Nimes area.
Today Thierry is farming 12ha of Carignan de Cinsault, Aramon, Grenache and Viognier using organic techniques on granite, clay and sandy soil. Thierry often uses carbonic maceration with indigenous yeast for the fermentation and bottles his wines unfined and unfiltered, without added sulfites.
Thierry is fastidious in his process of hyper observation and minimal intervention, the result being vibrant and sensitive wines with plenty of flavour but also with freshness and finesse.

What is natural wine?
The philosophy of natural wine is one of minimal-intervention, from vineyard to cellar. Natural wines are made using quality grapes, generally grown using organic and biodynamic practices, however vineyards may not always be certified as such due to the restrictive nature of these certification systems. Natural wines in most cases won't be filtered or fined, processes which generally involve the use of animal products.
Are your wines vegan friendly?
In almost all cases yes! Generally if you see "unfiltered and unfined" this will be an assurance that no animal products have been used in the process. The fining process is where conventional winemakers will often use egg and fish products (yep pretty gross) to remove sediment from wines. The sediment is natural, healthy and adds flavour so natural wine makers almost always leave some of it in.
Are your wines chemical free?
Yes, we only stock wines that use grapes grown using biodynamic or organic farming methods and will have none of the over 200 additives that can be found in conventional wines, *with the occasional exception of a tiny amount of sulphur. Some organic winemakers choose to add a small amount of sulphur (SO2) to ensure their wines travel better and last longer.
