Les Vins Pirouettes is a project launched by Christian Binner, that brings affordable natural wines to the table, and at the same time helps organic and biodynamic grape growers in Alsace move away from selling their grapes to cooperatives towards making and bottling natural wines. Each cuvée is made at a young grower’s winery, where they supply the grapes and Christian supplies his 20 years of expertise in making natural wine in Alsace, and of course his marketing and distribution savviness. Each cuvée will feature the name of the grower on the bottle. Here’s a word from Christian himself about this project:
Why do we call it “Pirouettes”?
Because we are having great fun with this project, and it gives us great joy!
Because the blends we make together are like fancy pirouettes – beautiful artistic figures which are the result of a certain know-how.
Because together, we free ourselves from the norms of the masses, from a standardized taste, making room for emotions, something new, and to joy.
Because this project also includes a new way of wine marketing. Note that this is not about usual trading practices.
I am happy to carry out this magnificent project together with my associates. Thanks a million for the trust you have given us!
