  1. This young Catalan appellation today unites 15 wineries that wishes to detach itself from the Cava D.O., found to be too permissive. On the other hand, the set of specifications for the "Clàssic Penedès" requires organic farming methods as well as a minimal 15-month maturation period. The Loxarel winery is a play on words that comes from the Xarelo variety used in this wine. Aged 28 to 30 months in the cellar, without added sulphur or dosage. Simply superb!
  2. A favorite among Greek wine lovers, Domaine Thymiopoulos is seductive in this rosé version of the popular xynomavro grape. Both vibrant and structured, this wine is also bottled with very little added sulfites. A serious and very complex rosé, it will be enjoyed on its own, although it can accompany pork chops marinated in fine herbs. We stock up on it, especially since it keeps well thanks to its tinted glass bottle.
  3. Battle of Bosworth is a family estate located in the heart of the McLaren Vale region, totalling 80 hectares of certified organic vines. Without barrel aging or added sulphites, Puritan is a true fruit bomb focused on freshness and immediate pleasure. Hits the spot with a margherita pizza with black olives.

  4. On his 19-hectare estate, located in the Wagram region, west of Vienna, Arnold Holzer puts a distinctive style on his wines. Supple, digestible and versatile, its Zweigelt is ideal for a raclette meal, a terrine and charcuterie evening or to satisfy red wine lovers as an aperitif. Chill for about forty minutes before serving to maximize its enjoyment!

  5. Formerly called Donauland, the Wagram region west of Vienna is home turf to prominent Austrian producer Karl Fritsch. Like his father, a pioneer in quality wines in the area, Karl works with the great Austrian grape Grüner Veltliner, which he has been cultivating biodynamically since 2006. You'll find that "Gru-Ve", as it's sometimes dubbed, is terrifically versatile with food.
  6. A strong minerality is expressed in this wine. The mouth is tense, lemony and elegant. Located between Bergheim and Ribeauvillé, this address has been a reference for many years in the Alsatian landscape, says the famous ‘’Revue du vin de France’’. Magnificent Riesling which will be able to improve another five years in the cellar. Perfect with crab salad, sushi or a poke bowl.

  7. From a carefully selected plot of 10 hectares, the wine pays tribute to the De Conti patriarch, who told his children when they started making wine: “If you make wine, do it right!”. This blend is reminiscent of Bordeaux, with flavours of blackcurrant, cedar and licorice. The palate is refined and beautifully balanced.

  8. Magnificent varietal expression of the Pinot Noir grape on Canadian soil, as Thomas Bachelder knows how to do so well. Here the cuvée is mouth filling, the tannins are luscious without being angular and the aromas of ripe cherry perfume the glass. A magnificent versatile wine that will please with traditional holiday cuisine, but also year-round with grilled poultry or even pasta with Bolognese sauce.

  9. Originally from Franche-Comté and specific to the Jura, the very original “Poulsard” grape variety produces wines with low pigmentation and high drinkability. Domaine Rolet offers an absolutely exquisite cuvée, as shown by this wine with delicious aromas of red berries, enhanced with a touch of spice. Serve it lightly chilled with a margherita pizza or fine cold meats!
