Jean-Luc Colombo in his vineyard in Cornas, France
"Les Abeilles" Cotes du Rhone wines are delicious, reasonably priced, and are produced by Jean-Luc Colombo, a progressive and innovative winemaker.
While making good wine, he practices sustainable viticulture, using no harmful chemicals.
"Les Abeilles" The Bees is named for the bees inhabiting the vineyard where this Cotes du Rhone is produced.
To help fight the bee crisis, the JLC Bee Helpful program has been created to help restore and protect honeybee habitats, by donating to the UC Davis Department of Entomology. For each bottle purchased a donation will be made by JLC, with a minimum of $10,000 pledged per year.
