Piquette

Piquette Sparkling Wine

Our Piquette wine was created with a fun element in mind. It was based on the goat (of our logo - Nubian Ibex) with a twist to show that it's not just for the Romans to enjoy. It's a fun drink, enjoyed chilled, and sort of tastes between a wine and a beer. It's made by adding water to fermented grape pomace and then we have added some organic honey from our own beehives and refermented and bottled it.

Our Piquette comes as a stand-alone product.

Best Opened: Best to open at 5-8 degrees celsius as one would a Champagne due to wine’s persistent bubble.

Winemaking Method: Grapes were pressed lightly, leftover wet grapes went back to concrete tank where water was added to dilute and ferment remaining sugars.This went on for 5-10 days. Juice was then racked off, and was allowed to settle over winter. Organic honey from our own bees was added to restart fermentation in spring - No SO2 added.
