Alice, the Familia Cecchin is called Escencias de la Tierra here in the states. It is imported by a lovely man named Rodolfo who I believe is one of the owners. The previous vintage had the Cecchin label. They changed the package for this market I believe. It is available at Chambers Street Wines incidentally. How's about that for self-advertisement.


Thank you! You're absolutely right. What a great discovery.


Hello Alice
I have a customer interested in the wines from Maury - especially the les loustics - do you know if they have an American importer? Thanks for your help

My Photo
I'm hunting the Leon Trotskys, the Philip Roths, the Chaucers and the Edith Whartons of the wine world. I want them natural and most of all, I want them to speak the truth even if we argue. With this messiah thing going on, I'm trying to swell the ranks of those who crave the differences in each vintage, celebrate nuance and desire wines that make them think, laugh, and feel. Welcome.
