Growing & Buying grapes
Juicy Squad is first and foremost a story of friendship, a new wine project shared by three friends: Thibaud Capellaro - @thibaud_capellaro , vigneron in northern-rhone (that you must know if you’ve been following us…), Bertraund Lutaud @yeast.ch , restaurateur in Geneva and Vincent Martinat @vixente_m , engineer in Houston!
Juicy Squad was started with the ambitious and fun idea of producing wines from many different regions, buying grapes from small farmers (needless to say, only ones working in respect of our planet…). The idea and initial plan was to vinify at first in Thibaud Capellaro’s winery in the north rhone as it’s a rather small project. Meanwhile, the project shaping and beyond making wines from other winegrowers fruit, they also have bought a small vineyard to grow their own vines, this one for sure had to be in the north rhone, in Saint Julien en Saint Alban, not too far from Thibaud’s cellar. This vineyard will give it’s first wine following the 2023 harvest!
Allo Houston, Chavanay, Geneva? How it works?
Bertrand would spend most of his free time escaping Geneva for the slopes of the northern rhone valley, joining Thibaud in the vineyard or in the cellar. Vincent , being further away, would only come a few times a year to participate in the critical phases: harvesting and vinification. The wines are vinified and signed by the three of them.
We are dedicated to craft wine. Real wine produced by real people in limited quantity, from the new generation of natural winemakers to the classic high-end Burgundians. Sorry, no industrial wine here!
We are not just another Direct-to-Consumer website. Actually, we don't sell directly to consumers at all, as we believe selling wine is an art. We don't want to replace it, rather just make it easier, so you can focus on the art.
We believe the trade should be as fluid as wine. Processes, information and transactions should flow as a fine wine, in and out of a Zalto glass. That's where a Digital Platform can help.
For the wine market to be healthy, firstly it must take care of the producers. We believe that the trade should be fair and transparent, across all channels, from the producer to the final consumer.
