60 years ago, American GIs gave an injured French patriot a Jeep to enable him to tend his Champagne vineyards. The neighbours dubbed it Jeeper Champagne.

Nowadays the house of Jeeper has gained an international reputation for producing fine Champagnes. With its stand-out bottle-shape (designed to reduce oxidation) and its distinct taste, it stands out from the field. What is the "Jeeper Taste" ?  It is the production of finely balanced wines, dominated by Chardonnay, with great persistence and no harshness, bitterness or astringency.

Based near Reims, Jeeper have 35 hectares of their own vineyards and work with growers from another 180 hectares.  10% of the vineyards are Premier cru and 10% Grand cru. Champagne Jeeper has just received the sustainable vine-growing and High Environmental Value (HEV) certificates.

DiscoverVin introduced Jeeper Champagne at Tyson Stelzer's Taste Champagne last month and we had excellent feed-back. The 3 cuvées below are about to land in Australia for the first time.

Jeeper made us a great first up offer which we are passing on to our loyal customers.

What a  treat to put away 6 bottles or more for the upcoming spring racing and party season!

International Grenache Day 2016

International Grenache Day is celebrated the third Friday of September. That's today, the 16th September 2016!

Grenache or Garnacha is one of the most widely wine grape varieties in the world. It generally is known as late ripening, so it needs hot, dry conditions to ripen, such as those found in Spain, where the grape probably originated. It does well in many other warmer regions both internationally and in southern Europe. It is one of the main grape varieties grown in the Southern Rhone in France. 

The typical fruit characteristics of Grenache is raspberry and strawberry. Low yield/older vines can give grapes with flavours of blackcurrents, black cherries, coffee, leather, black pepper, spices and nuts.

DiscoverVin sells 2 fabulous Grenache based wines from the southern Rhone. These come from biodynamic producer Domaine Roche Audran. One a blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Carignan has received 90 Points from Decanter and wine of the week recently from Oz wine writer Winsor Dobbin. The other a 100% Grenache is an intense raspberry fruit bomb from old vines. It is Grenache with a wow factor! 

You'll find our 2 Grenache based wines on-line
