London calling! RAW WINE FAIR (11 & 12 March)

Coming after La Rochelle, and before Vinexpo Hong Kong (end May), RAW WINE London.

What’s RAW WINE? More than just a wine fair (several indeed: London, Los Angeles, New York, Berlin), it’s a plateform that promotes “clean” wines: natural, organic and biodynamic wines. In other words, authentic wines from low-intervention growers – just what’s necessary to express the terroir. This RAW WINE co-founder video explains that clearly.

So, RAW WINE London 2018, it’s 150 growers from all around the world and, guess what, Valmengaux is one of them. RAW WINE London welcomes the wine and food trade, the press and the general public. The fair is held at The Store Studios, 180 The Strand (London). Come to see us and taste tons of good and sometimes surprising wines.

NB: fair opened to general public only on Sunday. No direct sale

We will be at “Sous les pavés, la vigne” wine fair, on Feb. 10th and 11th, in Bordeaux

“Vins actuels et naturels”, whatsdat? Handcrafted non-conventional wines by the way they are made (organic, few/no additive during  winemaking and ageing) then by their character (usually expressive and “living” wines). Simply said, wines with personality… like Valmengaux!

We’ll be there then! You will have the opportunity to taste (and buy) our wines. Meet you on Feb Sat 10th and Sun 11th, from 10am to 7pm, Hangar 14, Quai des Chartrons in Bordeaux!

All the best in 2018

2017 is over for a few weeks yet: first year of the new Domaine de Valmengaux, first year for many things for us.  A year of doubt, pressure, fatigue but also fun, support and great hope for the future!

We wish a super 2018 year to all of you who have been following us and drink Valmengaux – to us too for sure!

David and Valérie VALLET

Belgium loves Valmengaux!

12 Bordeaux rouges 2015 à boire dès aujourd’hui has selected Valmengaux En Jarre 2015 as one of the 12 Bordeaux Red 2015 ready to drink!

“15/20 –  Valmengaux en Jarre is a very fruity organic wine. Its concentrated fruity aromas, its delicate tannins and its very supple and pleasant have appealed to us. A nice, very mature and well velvety discovery! Pleasure in a bottle – a very nice one by the way.”

The complete selection here ( in French only)

Harvest 2017: done

Let’s go for it or not? September weather has played with our nerves: rain, chill then sun and warmth then shower again. We eventually decided to harvest on Tuesday, Sept, 26th after a sunny and warm week. 20 people for a flash hand-pickingle because of spring frost: fewer grapes than expected. At last, nice grapes should make nice wine!
