Driving on the 101 south of the San Francisco Bay is Monterey County, home to the farmlands of the Salinas Valley, the “lettuce capital of the world.” In the wake of Napa’s success, Monterey was extensively planted with vines. A foggy gap in the mountains, which runs perpendicular to the coast (west to east), allows warm air at the southwestern end of the valley to pull in the cool ocean air downstream. The mere 18 mile stretch of the Santa Lucia Highlands is one of the smallest major Pinot Noir regions in the world.

1 2017 maranges vigne blanche

At the southernmost end of the Côte d'Or is the relatively new (1989) appellation of Maranges, composed of the villages Cheilly, Dezize, and Sampigny. Formerly considered a source of structured blending wine for punching up Côtes-du-Beaune Villages wines, Maranges now produces some affordable Burgundy of great character.

Located in the town of Sampigny-lès-Maranges, Isabelle and Jean-Yves Vantey’s Domaine des Rouges Queues produces lovely wines which start with old vines and great farming. The Vanteys have worked the vines without chemicals since 1998 and made the transition to biodynamics from 2008.

Isabelle and Jean-Yves Vantey founded their small winery in Sampigny-Lès-Maranges in 1998 with one hectare of Maranges vineyards. They began adding parcels of other vineyards to form an estate which today encompasses 14 acres spread over 10 appellations.
