Le Caveau Fine Wines will soon become the first Georgia retailer to offer bottles from Frank Cornelissen, a Belgian maker with an estate in Sicily. Cornelissen's natural wines are rare, and Le Caveau will receive a case — one of 10 to be sold in the U.S. — of his 2013 MunJebel Bianco varietal. In addition to the Bianco, the shop will carry Cornelissen's 2013 Contadino No. 11 Rosso, 2013 MunJebel No. 10 Rosso, and 2013 MunJebel MC (Monte Colla) Rosso varietals.
Cornelissen's grapes are hand-harvested from 8.5 hectares of high-altitude vineyards, and no chemicals are used at the winery. Le Caveau owner Eric Brown expects to receive the wines late next week, barring possible weather delays. Pre-orders can be made by calling the shop at (770) 837-0710.
