"Béton" Red Blend 2019





Production Notes

An affectionate tribute to Paris’ bistro culture, Béton brings a carbonic freshness with the nuance of a conventionally fermented wine. Per its Loire-ish influence, the wine was aged entirely in concrete (aka Béton), including a 975 gallon concrete tank known to all as Big Bertha. 950 cases produced. 12.5% abv.

"Béton" Red Blend - 2019
Brisk and life affirming — like getting caught in the rain with an attractive stranger. Violets and summer peppers.

Winemakers and entrepreneurs Kate Norris and Tom Monroe are the power-duo behind one of our favorite wineries in Portland — or anywhere for that matter. Determined to make approachable, low-intervention wines, the pair founded Division Wine Co. in 2010, and have spent the last decade making pitch-perfect wines that are almost too good to be true (like their mind-boggling “Un” bottlings, which out-drink almost anything). Today, Division works with countless organic, biodynamic, and LIVE-certified vineyards across the state, including in the Columbia Gorge and the Applegate Valley. But maybe most exciting of all: Kate and Tom are helping to pioneer a new, more equitable Willamette Valley in which Pinot Noir is not the only game in town.
