chëpìka 2018 release with Nathan Kendall & Pascaline

chëpìka 2018 release with Nathan Kendall & Pascaline

Please join Nathan Kendall & Pascaline at the bar for the highly-expected release of their organic hybrid project in the Finger Lakes, chëpìka!

The name, coming from the Lenape language spoken by the Native American tribe of the Delaware, means “root”. The goal of chëpìka is to go back to the roots of the wine history of the FLX region, by crafting with care wines made with the original hybrids growing around the lakes since the early 18th century. A hybridization between native American Vitis Labrusca and European Vini Vinifera, Catawba and Delaware were among the very first varieties to be used for quality wine production in Northeastern USA, after many trial to make some grapes survive with a palatable taste and a decent enough yield. They were major component of an industry of world-renowned sparkling and fortified, until Prohibition hit. After the repeal they became use mostly as table grape, juice, and mass-market sweet table wines. Yet these hybrids - with also the Concord, the Niagara, etc. - still represent today more than 70% of the planted acreage of the region, certain able to grow with little to no need of chemical products. They deserved a revival.

chëpìka aims to pay tribute to this history, by working respectfully with the land and the inner qualities of these varieties. In 2016, the first vintage came out, after Nathan found a vineyard on Keuka Lake growing organically since 1971 Delaware and Catawba. As per their history and their profile, with some bright flavors and high acid when picked early, the method ancestral imposed itself, allowing them to rely only on natural ferment without the need of additives. Everything is done by hand, from picking to sorting to riddling to disgorging. This a true, unaldurated crafted taste of the region!

The 2 different cuvées were released in 2016 and 2017 as pétillant naturel. But 2018 saw one of the most challenging vintages in the modern history of the Finger Lakes. In order to preserve the idea of nothing added, nothing taken away, Nathan and Pascaline decided not to produce any Delaware and to release the Catawba as a still rosé. When wine is produced without additives, the climate, the terroir, the variety rule! This rosé preserves all the bright, tonic, low alcohol profile of the Catawba, with delicate notes of fresh watermelon, rhubarb and damask rose. Macerated for 2 weeks days, vinified and aged in older barrel with malolactic fermentation completed without any sulfite, it is highly quaffable yet highly unique and layered rosé.


We will also pour an awesome line-up of Nathan’s wines from his label Nathan K!

Details to be announced shortly!

Please join us at Racines NY on Wednesday, April 3rd at 7pm as we host Didier Barroulllet of the Clos Roche Blanche in a celebration of this important Loire Valley estate.  Beginning in the 1980s, Catherine Roussel and Didier Barrouillet at the Clos Roche Blanche in Touraine began a journey of discovery beginning with organic farming, through biodynamics and beyond, to some of the most intelligent and beautiful farming and winemaking we have ever experienced. Their estate became part of a movement, principally in the Loire Valley and Beaujolais, leading to more natural methods of farming and vinification that have inspired vignerons all over the world. Through their importer, Louis-Dressner Selections, their wines became known and loved by consumers in the US and helped to create the enormous interest in "wines of nature" in this country. Didier Barrouillet will join us, there will be a few speeches, dinner, and lots of 2014 Clos Roche Blanche to drink. 

Feel free to bring bottles of CRB or comparable wines to share.

Just a short distance from Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, on the north side of the Alpilles, is the Domaine de Trévallon, situated in the village of Saint-Etienne-du-Grès.
Here, everywhere, limestone emerges from the ground. It is ubiquitous and shapes this harsh, dry land.
Around the old farmhouse, the vineyards spread out over 17 hectares amid this vibrant and protected countryside.

Eloi Dürrbach planted his first vineyard in the Alpilles in 1973. 15 hectares of red are produced, made from equal amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, and 2 hectares made mainly from Marsanne et Roussanne.

We couldn't be more happy to have among us Ostiane, Eloi's daughter, for this evening. Chef Diego Moya put together a beautiful 4 courses dinner to pair with those Provencal wines full of character.

We will pour:

2017 Domaine de Trévallon Blanc
2009 Domaine de Trévallon Blanc
2016 Domaine de Trévallon Rouge
2012 Domaine de Trévallon Rouge
2010 Domaine de Trévallon Rouge
2009 Domaine de Trévallon Rouge
2007 Domaine de Trévallon Rouge
2001 Domaine de Trévallon Rouge

Dinner will be hosted on Wednesday, March 27 at 7PM. $195+Tax&Gratuity.
Limited Seating. For reservations, please call the restaurant at 212-227-3400 or email us atinfo@racinesny.com
We look forward having you for this awesome dinner!

MONDAY NIGHT FLIGHT - The greatness of Loire Valley White, Tessa LAROCHE (Savnnières Roche-aux-Moines) & Thibaut BOULAY (Sancerre)

This Monday, 25th of March we are super lucky to welcome behind the bar 2 fantastic vignerons from the Loire, Tessa Laroche from Domaine aux Moines in Savennières and Thibaut Boulay from Domaine Boulay in Sancerre (an estate dating back to 1380). Two very different expressions of the greatness of white wines in the Loire, from the schist of Roche Aux Moines to the superb Kimmeridgian marls of Chavignol - Les Monts Dammés, La Grande Côte and Clos De Beaujeu. We will do a mini-vertical of Tessa's, and an exploration of the different cuvées made by Gérard, including his work with Pinot Noir. 

Tessa and Thibaut will be there from 5.30 to 7.30, and we will continue to pour the flight all night, with a special bite by Chef @diegomoya.

$35 for 6 wines. See you on Monday - and more to come for the rest of the week!
