New York born, Saskia worked as a photographer in London before delving into the wine world as a sommelier. From there she decided to study wine in Burgundy and interned with the likes of Jean Claude Rateau, and Alain Castex. In 2013 she started her own project in Rousillon where her faimly is based. Saskia doesn't own a tractor and everything is done painstakingly by hand. She has 8 different parcels across three villages amounting to 4.5 hectares in size. This gives her a rich diversity of terroir and soil.
Ocarina is from a parcel in Montner and is a co-planted blend of Carignan, Syrah, and Grenache planted in black schist. Fruity and spicy on the nose, dense red fruit, herbs. Serious and playful at the same time. Don't have us tell you about it...try it for yourself.
