A Little Trivia
Clos Cibonne has been making their wines in the same traditional family-style for over 100 years. In fact, it's said that the winery is still using the same oak barrel from when they first opened in 1919! But what makes them stand out even more is that they joke about how their old barrel looks like a giant wooden whale.
