The Producer: Iruai • Methode Sauvage

Methode Sauvage was started in 2013 by Chad Hinds. We began, striving to find a voice for California Cabernet Franc and Chenin Blanc from all over the state. In the Spring of 2018, we will begin planting a vineyard in the California Alps of Siskiyou County, using the permaculture methods laid out by Masanobu Fukuoka. In the spirit of this new project, we have begun experimenting with wine styles and varietals from the Alps of Europe.

We seek to make wine with a sense of place by employing no additives and removing no character. We explore a diverse array of exceptional vineyard sites, with the goal of channeling terroir and showcasing California's diversity.

The Region: Calaveras County, California

Shipping Rates and Options

An important premise: wine bottles are heavy – about 3 pounds each – and shipping is expensive!

Primal Wine is not backed by venture capital money – we proudly are a mom and pop independent online store – and we must charge shipping on all orders, otherwise we wouldn’t be in business.

However, we try our best to offer you very competitive shipping rates:
