About This Wine
“Ora et labora.” Translation: pray and work.
It has been the motto of Christian monks and missionaries dating back to the 1800s, and it is the mantra of Sebastien Noel, the winemaker for Nobele Wines in the Paso Robles appellation of California.
Nobelle Wines specializes in French varietals made in the style and spirit of a small Burgundy producer. Noel is the ideal vintner for such a venture, since he has made wine in both Burgundy and Bordeaux. Now, he works with specially selected grapes from Paso Robles and Monterey County.
The descendant of a wine negociant, Noel grew up listening to stories about how his ancestors purchased wine and then shipped it by horse and carriage from the Loire Valley to Paris. Now, he makes wine, and the 2013 Nobelle “Rive Gauche” is a delicious expression of Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon that’s crafted with French flair… and a prayer.
