The Astral Plane is the metaphysical boundary that separates the earth from the heavens. One must shed the norms and accepted traditions in order to free one’s mind to break through this plane into the heavens. The combination of rosé, white, and red wines creates a category-less wine that subverts definition. Les Lunes Wine has always focused on vineyards and farming. The wines are structured, elegant, and age-able. The 2021 Astral Blend is a slightly different interpretation of Les Lunes’ estate vineyards in that the intention of the wine is to be light, fresh, and quaffable. This wine demonstrates a more playful side of their in-house farmed vineyards. Through shorter macerations and aging, the wine showcases the incredible fruit potential created by their thoughtful organic farming.
Sam Baron and Shaunt Oungoulian are two young California wine makers dedicated to remaining California wine makers. Sam Grew up in a winemaking family working in vineyards from a young age. After his studies at UC Davis, Sam staged in Burgundy, spent some time in San Francisco retail, and assisted Chris Brockway. Shaunt trained in chemistry at UC Berkeley but then studied oenology at Davis where he developed a love for natural wine. This led him to stage with Philippe Valette, and in turn led us to Les Lunes with endorsement from Valette. The two are now tending vines in Paso Robles of San Luis Obispo. Sam and Shaunt are also part of the team of Populis Wines, along with Martha Stoumen and Diego Roig.
