Vignenvie is a group of vineyard workers in the village of Charnay in the Beaujolais. The vineyard work is inspired by the "Do Nothing" farming philosophy of Masanobu Fukuoka, where the growers strive to let the vines flourish like they would in their most natural, untouched state. Calico is a special project from the infamous Rhone Valley winemaker Eric Texier, who makes the wine for Vignenvie and redistributes the wine to workers, barely any of the wine makes it to the states.

The vineyard is planted to many white and pink grapes, mostly different types of Muscats and Chasselases, as well as Pinot Gris and Grenache Blanc. All of which is picked and vinified together at Texier's winery. Nothing is added to the finished wine.

Floral and chalky on the nose, with subtle notes of peach blossom. Racy and bright, with apple, crunchy pear and juicy stone fruit. Great tension and texture, with just enough body and perfectly balanced acidity. [Kirk Sutherland, February 2022]
