Those who are interested in the world of wine, may have heard the term “garagiste” floating around recently. Garagiste vintages, otherwise known as “garage wine,” are craft wines produced in small batches. In many cases, wineries ship only a few hundred bottles of a given vintage, a fact which many think lends them an intimate appeal. The fact that garagiste wines are shipped in such limited quantities may lead some to think that they are only for serious wine snobs. This couldn’t be further from the truth, as there are a number of opportunities for casual wine drinkers and curious bystanders alike to sample garagiste vintages.
Gargiste wines come in all the varieties of mass market wine. Red and white options are available, as well as dessert and sparkling wines, all of which are carefully crafted to make them unique and memorable. One of the main attractions of garagiste wine is that winemakers are more open to experimentation when working with small batches. You may encounter tastes and aromas in a given type of wine that you never have before, which makes exploring garagiste vintages an exciting break from your usual wines.
If you’re curious about what the world of garagiste wines has to offer, begin by finding out what small wineries in your area have to offer.
