Ameztia, Irouléguy, France


Shepherd/winemaker Jean-Louis Costera established Ameztia as an avenue for his family’s passion for wine. The Costera family has been making wine in Irouléguy since the 17th century, operating under the mantra that the best grapes come from a well-tended vine. His nephew, Gexan, is now building on this philosophy and is using more organic treatments in the vineyard along with more green harvests. He also believes in adhering to a truer expression of the region through the use of indigenous yeasts and by expansion of Jean-Louis’s project of replacing their Cabernet Sauvignon vines with Cabernet Franc and the local Tannat varietal.
