The Brochus first bought their 15-acre property in the Mendoza region of Argentina sight-unseen in 2005, and they released their first vintage Malbec and Malbec blend from 2011 grapes in 2013.  “The day the mountain closes here, we head down there. It happens to coincide exactly with harvest season and we stay until mid-May,” Mike Brochu said.

Then, in October and November, the couple again leaves Telluride for the planting season. The Brochus returned from Argentina just in time to participate in the Telluride Wine Festival last month for the first time.   “Based on what we heard, people definitely loved our wine,” said Brochu, who is semi-retired after a tech and management career in the Seattle area. “People told us we were the belle of the ball.” Their vineyard curently produces enough grapes to make 600 cases of wine, and within a few years it will reach full capacity of around 1,000 cases. Their 2011 and 2012 vintages have both sold out, and their 2013 Malbec and Malbec blends are just about to go on sale (after a slight delay caused by backlog from the West Coast dockworker strikes).

Since then, the Brochus ski 100 days each winter, spend their springs and falls tending to the vineyard in Argentina and their summers back in Telluride. Their wine usually sells out, but visit capricewines.com to learn more or purchase a case.

region in Southwest France benefits from a blend of climate and soil influences that create uniquely expressive wines with character and richness. Though they can run the gamete from bold and hearty to light and fresh, the consistent characteristics found in many wines are their approachability and fruit filled qualities. Benefiting from winds blowing in both from the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, and soils filled with schist, clay, sand and rocks, enhanced by the wild aromatic “garrigue,” or the soil, herbs and other natural flora that grow in the wild in the South of France. France’s largest wine producing region has gone through some ups and downs recently, with quantity being a big focus in the past.

Happily, today, producing high quality wines in lower volumes is the goal, many with the additional focus of farming organically, sustainably or biodynamically. Though much was torn out in the early 1980’s, many wineries today were able to save vineyards filled with old vine Grenache and Carignan (ranging in age anywhere from 40 years old to 100+,) producing fruit filled wines with texture, richness and character. Utilizing stainless steel or large foudres (very large oak casks) for aging keeps wines fresh, while rounding out rough tannins, producing soft, approachable wines.

sits in the limestone filled soils near the Pic Saint Loop Mountain range, opposite its counterpart, the Montagne de L’Hortus, a kilometer-long ridge of limestone. With a Mediterranean influenced climate, sitting about 20 miles from the France’s southern boarder, and a diurnal shift from hot days to cool nights, especially in the mountain vineyards, vines thrive maintaining freshness while ripening in the warm summertime temperatures of the Languedoc. Château Fontanès Pic St-Loup blends Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre for a mineral filled, juicy, red currant and berry filled wine. Chill slightly just before serving to enhance the floral and fruity characteristics of the wine. $17 at Sigel’s.
