In 1903 in Nuits-Saint-Georges, Alexandre de Mayol de Lupé and Félix de Cholet joined forces to create the House which still bears their name, Lupé Cholet. Their adage « To combine the best of soil, vine and human skill to produce wines of unique personality » remains as relevant today as it was in 1903.
Today Lupé Cholet owns 25 hectares of prime vineyards in the Côte d’Or and Chablis as well as benefitting from long-established partnerships with various wine growers throughout Burgundy. This means that Lupé Cholet is perfectly positioned to offer one of the most extensive and highest quality portfolios in Burgundy. Only the very finest grapes are carefully selected for vinification in their beautiful 13th Century cellars at Château du Clos de Lupé in Nuits St Georges. Hand-picking, gentle pressing, partial or total de-stemming and cold maceration prior to fermentation are some of the techniques used to impart an elegant, feminine style to their wines. A house style that produces silky, complex wines with seductive ripe fruit aromas that progressively reveal themselves at each stage in their evolution.

Known for bold reds, crisp whites, and distinctive sparkling and fortified wines, Spain has embraced international varieties and wine styles while continuing to place the primary emphasis upon its own native grapes. Though the country’s climate is diverse, it is generally warm to hot. In the center of the country lies a vast, dry plateau known as the Meseta Central, characterized by extremely hot summers and frequent drought. Because of its location on the Iberian Peninsula, many of Spain’s wine regions are located on or near the milder coast, either of the Bay of Biscay to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the northwest, or the Mediterranean sea to the south and east. Each of these regions has its own unique soil, climate, and topography, as well as principal grape varieties.
In the cool, damp northwest region of Galicia, refreshing white Albariño and Verdejo dominate, though elsewhere the most popular wines are generally red. Rioja is Spain’s best-known region, where earthy, age-worthy reds are made from Tempranillo and Garnacha (Grenache), as well as rich, nutty whites from Viura. Ribera del Duero produces opulent, fruity, top-quality wines from almost exclusively Tempranillo. Priorat, a sub-region of Catalonia, blends Garnacha with Cariñena (Carignan) to make bold, full-bodied wines with a hint of earthiness. Catalonia is also home to Cava, a sparkling wine made in the traditional method but from indigenous varieties. Sherry, Spain’s famous fortified wine, is produced in a wide range of styles from dry to lusciously sweet at the country’s southern tip in Jerez. Since the 1990s, international varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Sauvignon Blanc have been steadily increasing in importance in several regions.
