Manual harvest of only the best fruits at the moment of the top maturity followed by an accurate selection to avoid any compromise.
NATURAL FERMENTATION WITH INDIGENOUS YEASTS
Natural starter (pie de cuve) using only yeasts that are naturally present on the skins of the berries, in order to obtain not standard wines, but products that really reflect the territory and production area bottling: cambiare sulphates con sulphates.
BOTTLING WITH THE MAXIMUM RESPECT OF THE WINE
Minimum use of sulphates and clarify only when really necessary. Red wines, generally, are bottled without any filtration in order to don’t lose any feature of the grape.

Roland Champion Champagne Le Cul du Singe Brut Nature is made from 100% Pinot Meunier.
The special Story about the name "Cul du Singe" (literally "Monkey's butt"):
"In the 70's, my Grandfather Roland and my Father François wanted to buy new lands to plant vines, but nothing was available at that time in Chouilly. They found some parcels in the Marne Valley, in the village of Verneuil. "Le cul du singe" was one of them.
One day, while my father and grandfather were both working in the plot to clean it up, an old man from the village came and watched them. Roland and François asked him why this parcel had this name. The old man remained silent for a long time, turned his beret on his head several times and said to them: Have you ever seen anything grow on a monkey’s ass? and he left without saying more.
For him, Roland and François were two strangers completely mad who wanted to grow a vineyard on this wild land!" - Carole CHAMPION
The Champagne Cul du Singe shows a brilliant gold color with coppery reflections - a hallmark of black grape varieties. In the glass, a fine effervescence nourishes a delicate and persistent foam cord. A fruity and jovial nose displays floral aromas and delicate red fruits. The palate is luscious, tonic and juicy with an energetic sap. A finish with bitter notes and grapefruit peel.
Capezzana Ghiaie Della Furbia Toscana IGT is made from Cabernet Sauvignon 40%, Syrah 35%, Merlot 25%.
In 1979 Ugo Conti Bonacossi created Ghiaie della Furba from vineyards planted among the pebble (Ghiaie) rich soils of the Furba stream. Originally planted with clippings from the famed Chateau Lafite estate in Bordeaux, the wine was made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot until the blend was changed in 1998 with the addition of Syrah. The inclusion of Cabernet Franc was slowly discontinued and today the blend includes Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah and is made only in the best vintages
This is rich, yet densely structured, which is a foil for black cherry, blackberry, earth and rosemary flavors. Long, if a bit gruff on the finish. Feels balanced and should develop well. Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2024 through 2038. 5,530 cases made, 1,000 cases imported.
