Wine Is Not A Drink; It's An Experience

Food For Thought Event
More than a drink, Wine is an experience. With unlimited choices it can also be intimidating.

Join me as I sit down for a talk with Roman Polnar as part of Hebrew Free Loan's series,"Food For Thought." It was an entertaining conversation and I was able to share my insights into enjoying the adventure of discovering and procuring great wines regardless of taste or budget.

I offered, what I believe, is a fresh perspective on the world of wine, how to create and enjoy memorable wine experiences, and share my own story about changing careers to start DouxVin, my experience-focused wine business.

A Sojourn Down the Loire

Henri Bourgeois
Sancerre is renowned for white wine and is one of the world’s benchmarks for Sauvignon Blanc. However, the Sancerre experience is incomplete without savoring the two red varietals allowed in the region: Pinot Noir and Pineau D’Aunis. One of our favorite producers in Sancerre, Famille Bourgeois, produces extraordinary wines from all three of these varietals featured in this splendid collection.
The Big Family
Famille Bourgeois, now in its 11th generation, covers 72 hectares of the esteemed Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé appellations, located in the most desired of Sancerre locations, Chavignol. And yes, Chavignol goat cheese and Sancerre Blanc are a perfect food pairing. Today, Arnaud, Lionel, and Jean-Christophe Bourgeois are just as much the stewards of that history as the initiators of the future of the vines and wines of the house. Though the family is forever striving to perfect their craft, they remain committed to Henri’s original vision of showcasing the purity of the varietals and the unique beauty of the Loire Valley.
2016 Bourgeois ‘La Bourgeoise’ Sancerre Blanc
"La Bourgeoise" is made from old Sauvignon vines growing on flinty slopes first worked by the monks of Saint Satur. The old vines of Domaine Henri Bourgeois offer a distinct character with notes as aromatically diverse and complex as the rugged terrain from which they came. 

93 points Wine Spectator

Sancerre Rouge
2016 Bourgeois ‘Les Baronnes’ Sancerre Rouge
The beautiful Sancerre Rouge is made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes from 40 year old vines. Following fermentation the wine spends up to 10 months in Tronçais oak barrels. On the nose, black cherries and vanilla with a hint of mint. On the palate, medium-bodied and slightly spicy with savory notes and balanced acidity.

90 points Wine Spectator

2016 Bourgeois ‘Le Vert-Galant’ Pineau d’Aunis Rosé
An excellent Rosé from the Coteaux du Vendômois, the northernmost appellation of the Loire Valley. Made in a vin-gris style, this wine is beautiful, crisp and ideal to imbibe on a warm summer day.

A Special Collection For A Special Day

My Image
The 4th of July holds special significance for me for two key reasons. Firstly, growing up in Johannesburg, July 4 was a special date that we always celebrated, as it was my parent’s wedding anniversary. My father, a true wine aficionado and avid collector, would bring out a bottle or three for the family to share on this auspicious date, especially for me and my siblings, as we are the living embodiment of that July day in 1963!
My Image

Trevor & Mimi

When I arrived in the US in 1985, settling first in LA, I joined in the unique celebration of America’s independence, I learned to appreciate all that makes our country and system such a shining example to the world. As millions have done before me, after officially becoming a citizen many years ago, July 4 is not only a celebration of the American spirit and our values, but, personally, embodies a new home, a welcoming place to build a future, a broad canvas on which to live a full, free and rewarding life. These past 35 years have been truly amazing and, as usual, this coming 4th of July celebration will be another special day to celebrate this special American adventure.

In recognition of those that have come to America over the centuries, I’ve composed a collection of wine from around the world (and one from here of course) to celebrate our diversity and adventurous spirit, bottles I intend to share with friends on the 4th.

This six-pack collection is a great accompaniment to the traditional outdoor festivities, from backyard barbecues to picnics watching fireworks:
  • France: NV Champagne Palmer & Co. Brut Reserve
  • Austria: 2017 Kracher Pinot Gris Trocken
  • Portugal: 2016 Quinta de la Rosa Estate White
  • Italy: 2018 Elena Walch Lagrein
  • Argentina: 2018 Zuccardi Q Malbec
  • USA: 2013 Terra Valentine Amore
Happy Fourth!

Enticing Chianti Classico

Castello Di Ama

2015 Chianti Classico 'Ama'

Warren at home.
Tuscany has long been a DouxVin go-to favorite for one of our most-loved varietals—Sangiovese. Few red wines promote the relaxed pleasure derived from a top-notch Chianti Classico. To be able to relax over a summer barbecue with a 90+ point wine from an artisanal producer like Castello di Ama, provides a respite from daily pressure and stress. And as this offer represents such a terrific value, this an opportunity not to be missed.




Castello di Ama sits 12 miles northeast of Siena in the hills of Gaiole. This is the heart of Chianti Classico, a bucolic rolling landscape of woods, vineyards and olive groves. The property is owned and operated by the husband and wife team of Marco Pallanti and Lorenza Sebasti. Over the last quarter century they have replanted all of the vineyards and upgraded all of the winemaking capabilities to make this one of Tuscany’s showcase producers.

Castello di Ama
My 2015 AMA Chianti Classico

2015 Chianti Classico “Ama”

Raspberry and cherry flavors are immediate in this elegant, balanced red, followed by accents of earth and spice. … well-proportioned. Drink now through 2022.

Legendary Lail

Lail Vineyards

Lail Blueprint Cabernet & Sauvignon Blanc Collection 6-Pack

Robin Lail is a legend in Napa hailing from one of the most storied and famous historical families in the Valley, dating back to 1879 when her great -granduncle, the iconic Captain Gustave Niebaum founded Inglenook. Robin grew up among the vineyards of Inglenook, pioneers of fine winemaking in the Napa Valley. Inglenook was passed down to Robin’s grandfather and then to her father, John Daniel Jr., a true innovator (he was the first to put ‘Napa Valley’ on his labels and pioneered varietal labeling) and wine industry leader who produced legendary wines.
Robin Lail
Robin was recently featured on the cover of Wine Spectator Magazine’s May 2020 Issue. A terrific story, well worth the time to read—ideally with a glass of Lail Cab or SB on hand.
Sauvignon Blanc
2018 Blueprint Sauvignon Blanc
“The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc, from vineyards in Yountville and Coombsville, was barrel fermented in 30% new French oak and aged in stainless steel. It opens with beautiful peach blossoms, fresh green apples and lemonade notes with touches of lime leaves, coriander seed and paraffin wax. Medium-bodied, refreshing, elegant and with impressive intensity, the palate delivers impactful citrus and savory layers with a zesty kick to the finish.”

90 points Wine Advocate

Cabernet Sauvignon
2017 Blueprint Cabernet Sauvignon
“A blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, and 6% Petit Verdot from a multitude of vineyards, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Blueprint reveals a saturated purple color as well as classic notes of blackcurrants, tobacco, damp earth, chocolate, and hints of new leather. Beautifully balanced, medium to full-bodied, ripe, and textured, it's a smoking good, affordable effort well worth seeking out. It will evolve for 10-15 years or more.”

The Best CA Pinot & Chard Secret

“What is the most overlooked terroir in California? It’s a question I am asked often. The answer is always the same: The Santa Cruz Mountains. These rugged hillsides just south of San Francisco are home to some of the world’s greatest vineyards and wines."
My Image
- Antonio Galloni
California’s Best Kept Secret, Vinous Media
Mindego Ridge winery in the Santa Cruz Mountains is one of DouxVin’s absolute go-to sources for amazing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Elegant wines that age beautifully, at prices that are well below their market value.

Mindego Ridge implements a comprehensive farming program to achieve optimal vine health and fruit quality, adopting best practices from organic, sustainable and biodynamic farming disciplines.
Mindego Ridge
We are pleased to be able to offer a discounted 6-Pack collection that includes two bottles each of the extraordinary and highly-regarded 2016 Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, as well as the 2018 Rosé of Pinot Noir – which is not typically offered outside of the tasting room.

Outstanding Moueix Bordeaux

Family run since 1937, Établissements Jean-Pierre Moueix is the owner and producer of several prestigious crus, including Château La Fleur-Pétrus, Château Trotanoy, and Château Hosanna in Pomerol; Château Bélair-Monange Premier Grand Cru Classé in Saint-Émilion; and, in Napa Dominus Estate and Ulysses.
The renowned and globally famous Christian Moueix joined the family business in 1970. Initially directing the company’s viticultural activities, he later assumed commercial responsibilities before becoming President in 1991. Passionate about viticulture, he added to the firm’s vineyard holdings through the acquisition of remarkable vineyard sites in Pomerol including Château Providence and Dominus Estate, a 124-acre vineyard in Napa Valley acquired in 1982. He has been named Winemaker of the Year by both Wine Spectator and Decanter.




2012 Château Providence, Pomerol
Moueix’s first release was in 2005 following the purchase of the property which, due to its location next to Chateau Lafleur and Hosanna, he saw as having great potential. Testament to the quality of the fruit, the vineyard was rolled into Lafleur Petrus. The wine, due to the gravelly clay, has a supple, plum fruit character.

94 points Wine Spectator

2010 Chateau La Serre
La Serre is one of the absolute little gems of Saint-Emilion, a property right at the top of the village, surrounded by many illustrious estates, and year after year producing fabulous under-the-radar wines. Floral nose with an expression of ripe dark fruit.

94 points Wine Spectator

Yalumba Signature Cabernet
2016 L’Hospitalet de Gazin
Château Gazin is located on the north-eastern part of the Pomerol plateau, between Châteaux Petrus and Lafleur-Gazin. L’hospitalet de Gazin, the second wine of Château Gazin, has been produced since 1986 from the fruit of younger vines. An elegant, supple, charming wine, it can be enjoyed after just a few years in bottle.

Domaines Ott – The Queen of Rosé


Domaine Ott – The Queen of Rosé

Domaines Ott is the most coveted rosé in the world. In 1896, after a tour of France’s many vineyards, Marcel Ott, a young graduate in agronomy engineering from Alsace, finally found an estate that inspired him. To set the scene, we are in Provence. The Mediterranean is lapping at the shore a mere stone’s throw away...
In these parts, growing vines is the legacy of ancient times. Today, 120 years later, cousins Christian and Jean-François Ott dedicate their life to their ancestor’s love for the site, exemplified by their single estates: Château de Selle; Château Romassan, and; Clos Mireille.
This wonderful “Taste of Domaines Ott” contains 2 bottles of each legendary Estate plus a Magnum of Château De Selle:
Chateau de Selle
2018 Château de Selle
Château de Selle was the first estate acquired by Marcel Ott in 1912. It is in Taradeau, with distinctive terroir producing highly distinguished and elegant wines.
Vines are grown on terraced vineyards and the wines draw their flavors from the arid climate and minerals in the soil, demonstrating exceptional character. Wines are made from an accomplished blend of several grape varieties with which half of the estate’s 140 hectares are planted: Cabernet Sauvignon lends complexity, elegance and magnificent strength, Grenache provides a full-bodied texture, Cinsault adds a delicate and rounded touch, while Syrah gives its rich color to the blends.
2018 Chateau Romassan
Acquired by the Ott family in 1956, it took thirty years of hard work and experience for the old Château Romassan to produce great wines typical of the Bandol AOC appellation. The estate is located in the heart of the celebrated Bandol winemaking region.

Indigenous to the area, Mourvèdre is the estate’s primary grape variety—particularly suited to the arid climate and austere soil. Its calm temperament is revealed in the strength of its harmonies, its robust structure and its staying power both on the palate and in the cellar. This singular land with its sun-drenched and particularly dry microclimate produces sophisticated and very powerful wines.
Chateau Romassan
Clos Mireille
2018 Clos Mireille
In the 1930s, Marcel Ott fell in love with Clos Mireille, a very old property, right on the coast by the intense blue of the Mediterranean.

Planted on foothills on the shores of the Mediterranean, the vineyard’s location is unusual. The character of the wines is made even more exceptional in that the clay soil on this ancient rocky outcrop contains no limestone. Its broad sea-facing orientation gives Clos Mireille wines their inimitable character.



Limited quantities of Domaines Ott  available.
