Provençal Collective is curator of some of the finest organic wines now available in California and other states for the first time.
Since 1988 Provençal Collective curator Frank Caterinicchio has travelled many times to numerous French wine regions in an ongoing and never-ending pursuit of new and exciting wines.
Over the decades his passion for the grape has afforded him opportunities to meet and barrel taste with some of the great French producers including the late Count Lur Saluces, Armand Rousseau, Rene Le Clerc, Phillippe Drouhin and Noel Ramonet.
But it wasn’t until a recent trip to Provence that he discovered a new bounty of high-quality organic wines being produced in the Rhone Valley.
Many of these exciting, fresh wines are the work of talented young producers who respect their terroir’s precious heritage yet choose to adopt new organic farming.
Their 21st Century approach to wine making is producing some uniquely exquisite red, unique whites and stupendous rose wines that are a must have for my fellow brothers and sisters of the grape.
Provençal Collective is proud to introduce these chosen wines to the American palate.
In 1987 Curator Frank Caterinicchio spent an evening with the late Count Lur Saluces. Asked what it was like to own what many believe to be the greatest vineyard in the world the Count replied: “Oh the taxes, you know!”
