On the eleventh day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: 11 Wines in a Wine Fridge

January 4, 2021

Clos des Amis’s “Chambang” is a very special, very small production sparkling wine from Ventura County, CA where I live. I’ve helped prune these vines, picked these grapes, helped with dosage, and bottled them!

Today January 4 is the eleventh day of Christmas, and it is the day to celebrate St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, the first American saint, who lived in the 18th and 19th centuries. Previously, it was the feast of Saint Simon Stylites who somehow lived on a small platform on the top of a pillar for 37 years! 

Also on the eleventh day of Christmas, my true love sent to me:

And what are the 11 wines in that wine fridge? Hopefully a fine selection of organic and biodynamic wines, with at least a few bottles of bubbles from around the world! For example,




Biodynamic Leclerc Briant


Champagne’s biodynamic Vincent Charlot; photo taken in their tasting room after visiting the  vineyards.

Free Mousse from Tete Rouge


Argentina Organic Domaine Bousquet



Need some STILL Pinot Noir– not the kind that comes as bubbling rose ? How about:

5 Pinot Noir from Oregon
