Pépin is a partnership between Jean and Pierre Dietrich of Domaine Achillée and Xavier Couturier and Pierre Sanchez of Duo Oenologie. They blend biodynamic grapes from their vineyards as well as sourcing grapes from 15 local independent growers in order to support up and coming farms in the natural wine industry. Rather than following a vintage structure, Pépin uses 'lots' in which the blend or winemaker may vary from lot to lot, but the label remains the same and the flavor profile is similar. They are currently making a red, white, rose, and orange, all organically or biodynamically farmed and made in a low interventions style with zero sulfur. 


This particular Pépin Blanc is a blend of Auxerrois, Pinot Blanc and Riesling, with a slight creaminess on the tongue and apricot and peach notes.

  • From the winemaker:

    Each variety are harvested, pressed, and fermented separately. Direct pressing of the whole bunches is followed by one-night of lees settling before the start of fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Alcoholic fermentation begins naturally using only indigenous yeasts and the wine went through full malolactic fermentation. After the completion of malolactic fermentation, the components were blended. No sulfur additions were made at any point during the vinification process.

    Maturation: Aged in stainless-steel tanks for 6 months. Bottled without fining or filtration.
