Poussin in Paris!

One of the newest Parisian additions to Raisin’s map is Poussin in the 17th arrondissement!

A spot as cute as the 🐥 in its name + alive wines, cheese, charcuterie, and great small plates to complete this natural wine bar and shop that you must go see 🐣

St. Nicolas and San Nicolás at Macatho

It’s the 6th of December, St. Nicolas, and San Nicolás is exactly where Macarena del Rio and Thomas Parayre make their wonderful wines – way down in southern Chile, about 400 km south of Santiago.

This cuvée is Segundo Flores from Pais Negra Coriente vines – pie franco, on half a nectar of a 150 year old vineyard. Happy Saint Nicolas to everyone!

The Tuscan hills of Pācina

Stretching across the Tuscan hills of Castelnuovo Berardenga, where biodiversity flourishes and the rich soils produce an abundance of plants, fruits, vegetables, and some pretty incredible grapes might we add…is winemaker Giovanna Tiezzi Borsa at Azienda Agricola Pācina.

The 65 hectares of land are mostly made up of olive trees, fields, and forest, and only 10 hectares are vines – organically farmed, and treated with the utmost respect, all the way through the entire winemaking process, embodying natural and delicious Italian wine. Check them out on Raisin!
