About Athénais de Béru

Burgundy, France

2016 was a frustrating year for many wine producers including Athénais de Béru. On a cold and dark night in April, a frost destroyed the entire vintage.

Athénais jumped into an old car and hit the road towards the warm and sunny south of France in search of healthy grapes from her winemaker friends. She brought back some beautiful grapes and produces a unique vintage called “Deci Dela” (meaning “from here and there”). This vintage is born from the solidarity of the winemaking community and Athénais’ brilliant winemaking skills.
