Wine making: quick facts
The four wine families
On Mondays, wine lovingly caresses your taste buds and its amora full of truly bewitching floral and fruity spray your nose.
On Tuesdays, the previously magical bottle can give you the cold shoulder and leave your taste buds disappointed.
Who's fault is that? The moons! These wines are not full of chemical, but filled with life. They evolve as the stars and planets move around, a notion which can offend down-to-earth minds. It is, however, a reality, which our wine producers would have a lot to say about.
Don't panic, there is nothing catastrophic about this. You just need to pay attention to the lunar calendar before you grab the corkscrew. It is quite easy to read since there are only four types of days: leaves, fruits, roots and flowers.Show full calendar

On fruit and flower days, wine likes to have fun, and so do we.
On root days, he might be in a bad mood. Nothing serious. What happened to the carafe?
On leaves day, he'll be outright distasteful. Shall we drink tea?
What a team!
Le Passeur de Vin is also a bunch of amazing and competent people, with complementary jobs but with shared passion and values: respect, honesty, enthousiasm, listening and generosity.
