Producer
The first US brand developed by the Taub family, owners of leading importer Palm Bay International, Au Contraire represents the family’s return to their roots in the California wine business. This charming French expression, Au Contraire, was used often by Palm Bay’s beloved founder David S. Taub, usually preceding an insight that took a turn from conventional wisdom. President & CEO Marc D. Taub fittingly adopted his father’s favorite saying to embody a new project that takes Palm Bay in a somewhat unexpected and exciting direction: domestic wines. After decades of bringing gems from around the globe to American consumers, Au Contraire is the debut new release from the Taub Family Vineyards selections. This new domestic portfolio is designed to complement Palm Bay’s renowned import selection, and exemplify a commitment to developing outstanding wines from key California appellations. Au Contraire comes from California’s prestigious Sonoma Coast AVA. With over 2,000 acres of vineyards, this appellation extends from San Pablo Bay in the south to the border with Mendocino County in the north. With most vineyards located above fog line, a cool climate and beneficial rainfall levels, it is an ideal growing area for fine Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
