Wine Tasting: Artisian Collection Wines with
Owner Florencio Navarro

The Artisan Collection markets a portfolio of wines from small, artisanal, family owned wineries. Our book is carefully selected to reflect the values of the company, centered on preserving and promoting wine traditions and authenticity. The company was founded in 2003 by Florencio Navarro, whose family has made wine for four generations. Our winemakers seek to showcase the best attributes of the varietals and the land, using winemaking techniques that are non-interventionist and that emphasize the importance of attention to detail, starting with the vine. About a third of our producers make their wines using 'natural' methods. This means they farm organically, hand-harvest, use only native yeasts, have 70 mg/L of sulfites or less, use no winemaking additives and only lightly fine or filter.

Featured Glass Pour 

Broc Cellars
Picpoul 2017


Winemaker's Notes: 
From the limestone-rich, nutrient poor windswept Luna Matta Vineyard in the western hills of Paso Robles, our late-ripening taut and concentrated Picpoul is a dramatic deference from your usual. Here, we present the unadulterated version, owing its expressive complexion not to a particularly noble grape variety, but a uniquely suited place just hospitable enough for most of the vines to survive and produce a few handfuls of grapes each year. Its typical Picpoul lemon acidity is buried under a spectrum of floral-lifted fruit. Fermented entirely in concrete egg.
