Jolie-Laide: Producer profile

This new-wave California producer with an old-school approach is making a name for itself with 'pretty-ugly' wines beloved by sommeliers and collectors alike

The French term ‘jolie-laide’ literally translates as ‘pretty-ugly’; used to describe someone who is attractive, with an imperfect charm and fascination, though not conventionally beautiful in a purely aesthetic sense. The ethos it brings to mind perfectly summarises the wines Scott Schultz produces.
