Maison Advinam

Categories: ,

Maison Advinam is owned by Anne Buiatti, whose farmhouse south of the city of Bordeaux, just outside the Graves appellation boundaries, has been converted to a very old-school winery. The property has no electricity, so all work in the winery is necessarily done by hand and foot, vinification and aging takes place in terra cotta amphorae (and sometimes old barrels), and there’s no no fining, filtration, or chemical additions used at all. With two hectares in Bordeaux and two more to the southeast in Roussillon, Anne farms using biodynamic principles. She encourages biodiversity in and around the vineyard on both properties with carefully planted fruit trees and flowering bushes, beehives, and vegetable gardens.
