What are you putting in your wine cellar in 2018 from Provence?

Contributor blog post by Jerry Clark for Provence WineZine:

Musings of a Wine Maven…

A wine cellar can be defined in various ways. In its basic element, I define it as a place to stash wine.

My first was a nine-bottle wooden rack placed at the back of a clothes closet on the seventh floor of an air-conditioned apartment building in New York City. Since that humble beginning, my storage space has hitched itself to my business-related moves to no less than fourteen locations.

…Continue reading here. Today Jerry’s cellar has not only grown in capacity, but certainly in variety. Where he once focused almost exclusively on well-traveled wines from Bordeaux, “Today the cellar make-up is principally red, 60% of which will likely rest there for a minimum of five years.”

His selection expanded well beyond Bordeaux to California, the Rhône Valley, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Spain, Italy and other regions. However, the trick is determining exactly when to drink the bounty.

It was love at first sight when my family and I arrived in the charming village of Lourmarin for a short vacation, nearly 20 years ago. We returned home to Portsmouth, New Hampshire and the next thing I knew we were planning a much longer sojourn in that village and making arrangements to enroll our daughter in the local school there. That led to buying a maison de village— actually two, then a courtyard, a parking spot, and a bergerie— in our favorite Provençal village where we (readily) adopted that certain joie de vivre, established dear friendships, and, to this day, endeavor to blend in with the crowd at Café Gaby.

We no longer own property in Lourmarin, but we continue to hang our hats there frequently and gather fodder for our souls and for The Modern Trobaors and Provence WineZine. There is never a shortage.

The Modern Trobaors , conceived in 2008, is about all things Provence: its markets, hilltop villages, lavender, art, literature, culture, history, food, wine, and news. Provence WineZine, launched in August 2014, focuses on wines from the regions of Provence and the Southern Rhône Valley—with a special emphasis on Provence's world-renowned rosés—and the men and women who make them.
