Whimsy captured in a glass. A medley of summer berries on the nose. The lively spritzy palate follows in step with sour cherry, wild strawberry, lemon zest and a whisper of herbs. Soft acidity yields to a clean finish. A fresh and refreshing low alcohol wine, made and enjoyed for centuries among the French vignerons. We say oui oui!
Piquette is made from a second fermentation and pressing of grape pomace, which is normally thrown away in modern winemaking. Known most famously as a provincial wine made in France by farm and vineyard workers for their own consumption, this practice dates as far back as Ancient Rome. With Piquette, wine grapes get a second life as a light and refreshing "wine of the people."
