The grapes are handpicked early in the morning and, in some cases, even during the night. We handle the grapes very reductively with dry ice in the vineyards through to the fermentation vessel. Grapes are crushed on arrival with a CO2 blanket and given at least 12 hours of skin contact.

Pair with charcuterie boards, fresh cheeses like fresh goat cheese (chèvre), mozzarella, or ricotta and soft cheeses like brie and camembert.

About Light White

Light white wines are known for their dry and refreshingly tart flavour. Most light-bodied white wines are meant to be enjoyed young when they have maximum acidity and bold fruit.

These easy-drinking dry white wines are some of the most-sold wines in the world (even if red wines get more attention). Light whites are like the “beer of wine” and, for this reason, they are perfect to drink with most foods. Some of these wines are perfect for savory lovers (like Sauvignon Blanc and Grüner) with green herbal flavors of gooseberry and bell pepper.
