  1. Recognized for his exemplary work at home in Portugal, Dirk Niepoort guides his son Daniel and Philipp Kettern in this project in Moselle. The prolonged contact of the Riesling skins with its juice gives this orange wine a full texture, nice tannins and a completely sublime profile of apricot, citrus, flowers and spices. A nice pairing to ginger chicken.
  2. A judicious blend of classic grape varieties from the region, from vines more than half a century old, this wine stands out with presence and is definitely not average. Skin maceration for 12 months and aging on fine lees for another six months, here is an aromatic bomb that combines purity, minerality and complexity. Featuring an endless persistence in the mouth, it will delight lovers of orange wines with panache. A sure hit with Asian cuisine.
  3. A native Montrealer, John Howard initially wanted to name his wines with his own name; his friends then criticizing him for being "another of those megalomaniacs"... and it stuck! His maceration white is of great aromatic complexity combining flavours of pepper, bergamot, marmalade and rhubarb with subtle vegetal notes. True happiness with a shrimp pad Thai.
  4. Quickly gaining in popularity, maceration white wine (orange wine) is however not new. Present since Antiquity, this technique allows white grape skins to release in the must this particular tint and an intriguing tannic sensation. Made from the Merseguera and Macabeu varietals, the wine crafted at Baldovar grabs our attention because of its great freshness and its fruity, floral and mineral character.
  5. Developed by Alfredo Arribas in a philosophy that sticks to natural wines, this cuvée comes from vineyards acquired in altitude and cultivated according to biodynamic precepts. Their exceptional situation allows the fruit to ripen slowly and preserve its crunchy freshness. The estate intervenes as little as possible and does manual harvest and destemming. Without added SO2, fermentation starts with indigenous yeasts and the skins are macerated in amphorae for 36 days. Very aromatic and thirst-quenching, this wine surprises with its powerful scents of mandarin and other citrus pulps, as well as a delicate floral note. It will make grilled fish shine just as much as a veal chop!
  6. Exit the light and simple Aligoté that turns into a Kir! The grape variety takes on a pretty golden hue here with lovely fruity and floral tones. The mouth is tight with beautiful tannins which come to decorate a fresh and digestible ensemble. Nice discovery to savour with a starter of prosciutto and cantaloupe.
  7. This cuvée showcases the Georgian grape variety Mtsvane, which was vinified in qvevri (huge terracotta jar buried underground, as tradition dictates) for a period of six months. The result is a powerful and very aromatic wine, endowed with a certain astringency due to its long maceration with the grape skins. A jewel in its style! Don't serve it too cold so that it expresses itself as harmoniously as possible. A treat with a pork and apricot tagine.
  8. The Tetramythos estate is located in the north of the Peloponnese, a region rich in wine history where the first “pithos” (amphorae) were made. Benefiting from the freshness of the winds of the Gulf of Corinth and its high-perched vineyards, the property is gaining both notoriety and qualitative recognition throughout the world. This Roditis cuvée comes from frank old vines of around fifty years old. The transformation is done slowly and as naturally as possible, while the maceration will last about five months. Very expressive and slightly tannic, it will make a fiery duo with pork or chicken dumplings.

  9. A young star winemaker from the Czech Republic, Milan Nestarec produces thirst-quenching wines bursting with energy and his popularity transcends borders. This blend, resulting from organic viticulture and crafted under the precepts of biodynamics, was fermented under the action of indigenous yeasts and bottled without added sulfur. A gem to discover with an Asian pork stir-fry, and we love its liter size!
