Garage Wine was literally started in a garage in 2001, by Etobicoke expat Derek Mossman and his wife Pilar Miranda.
The idea was to make wine on a small scale, a personal scale, by hand with the family. The project, quite literally, emulates the ‘garagiste’ style, a stark contrast to the large, traditional estates and Viñas that dominate the Chilean wine scene.
Winemaking is as low-intervention and sustainable as it gets – all wines are fermented with native yeast, see no additions of any kind, very little new wood, and are low in sulphites. They also use recycled wine bottles, painted silk screen labels and hand dip the top of each bottle with a wax seal.
If Burgundy is mainstream, Jura is offbeat, and Domaine Baud is the conductor of this peculiar symphony.
Running in parallel to the east of Burgundy is a tiny wine appellation named Jura. Millions of years ago, this region was buried under a vast ocean that was home to a plethora of prehistoric sea creatures.
Today, fossils from the Jurassic Era can be found scattered amongst vineyards, lending a unique sense of place to the wines of Jura.
In the middle of this Jurassic World sits Domaine Baud, a family estate run by 9th generation siblings, Clémentine and Bastien Baud, who have been crafting some of the best-value wines in the region.
The winery has been certified Terra Vitis, which signifies their commitment to sustainable viticulture and preserving the traditions that makes their wines incredible.
