Varietal: Gros Manseng & Petit Courbu
Farming: Sustainable, Biodynamic
The appellation of Irouleguy stretches along a small band of hillside vineyards in the Pyrenees within the French Pays Basque. Practically all of the vineyards were wiped out from phylloxera over a century ago and when the Branas planted their vineyard in 1984, they were the first to do so on a meaningful scale. The vines are planted along very narrow terraces that have been cut out of the remarkably steep hillsides. The Brana’s farming practices are non-intervening and include bio-dynamic principles. All harvesting is done manually.
