Maison Advinam

Maison Advinam

Maison Advinam is located in Saint-Morillon, in the Graves region of Bordeaux. The wines are produced in Gironde and Roussillon by Anne Buiatti, in the philosophy of natural wines.

This neo-winegrower produces four cuvées: La Donna, La Bouffonne, L’Allumée and L’Allumée orange. It has the particularity of using Syrah de Calce in some of its blends and has recently planted new grape varieties: Castet, Mérille, Carménère and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Her 2019 vintage of the Bouffonne cuvée is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. The Merlot is cultivated on flint, the Cabernet Sauvignon on clay and the two grape varieties are "hermitaged" as in the 19th century with the powerful Syrah.

“Old 19th century cuvee mix, cabernet, merlot with syrah. Biodynamic farmed, natural winemaker, 24 months in amphora. Zero additives, no sulphur. No electricity in the winery. The range of wines would have a few Bordelais saying ‘bouffonne’ under their breath at Ann Buiatti, no doubt. Power to her!” - Mike Bennie, Wine Front.

Across vineyards, fruit fields, and fallow fields, Buiatti cultivates Gironde and Roussillon entirely by hand, without any chemical to focus on the simple means of respecting the living. Her tools of choice are the pickaxe, sickle, shears, secateurs.

In the cellar it is also entirely manual and quite natural: destemming and sorting of the grapes in a wicker basket, crushing by hand and by foot, fermentation of indigenous yeasts. All her wines are aged in 750L terracotta amphorae, with some 300-liter barrels. As a further mark of uniqueness there is no sticking or filtration.
