Welcome to The Somm Set. Each month we’ll be sitting down with a guest sommelier and uncovering their guilty pleasures, cellar staples, and everything in between! Follow as they hand-select their favorites from our warehouse, giving you the inside scoop on cellar must-haves!

This month on The Somm Set, we’re excited to feature Meghan Zobeck, Winemaker.  

This week from Meghan Zobeck:

Let’s ramp things up. On this stop we will be getting rowdy with the notorious Gang of Four and my favorite grape variety, Gamay. For my personal brand, M. Zobeck Wines, I make a Gamay, quite honestly, so that I can drink it whenever I want. Gamay was deemed to be a “disloyal” grape by the Duke of Burgundy in 1395 and has been punk rock ever since. The Gang of Four consists of winemakers Marcel Lapierre, Jean Foillard, Jean-Paul Thévenet and Guy Breton who were raging against conventional, chemical-laden farming when they set out to make responsibly farmed, low intervention wines in Beaujolais. I wonder if they had any idea the movement they would inspire. Now, take the last bite of sardine on buttered toast before you get stuck in a debate about the definition of natural wine. Our Lyft is waiting.
