Troppo Giovane was founded by Alessandro da Fies and Théo Cauchois. Having worked together during the early years of BAK restaurant, we stayed great wine friends, enjoying the complementarity of our palette. The name troppo Giovane is for the Italian descriptive “too young”. Winegrowers Stanko Radikon and Dario Princic kept using it when asked their opinion about the french wines showing at a tasting in Saumur. It became a joke but also highlighted a question all too common in the wine world: is wine ever old enough?
Time for the vines and the wine
Our philosophy: working with winemakers who take their time. After ten years of drinking “natural” we found ourselves at the crossroads of traditional winemaking and the modern natural wine movement. While we agree in essence with the precepts of natural wines, we feel it can be a limitation to the understanding of what makes a great wine. Wine is about feeling and truth: in the vineyard, cellar and in the glass. In a way, we are on the left-wing of the wine industry but the right-wing of the natural wine movement. We aspire to offer wines that were given the chance to develop their true flavours. We represent winemakers from France and Italy, natural wines, made with a traditional and local approach.
In the last few years, Troppo has also extended its import to spirits. We are proud to represent companies such as Empirical: pushing the boundaries of their craft and looking for new ways of approaching gastronomy. Troppo also works in collaboration with the Paris-based company Mezcal Brothers to offer some of the most delicious and inspiring agave spirits.
