In Piedmontese, Bogia Nen means that it does not move and refers to the passive temperament, but also to the stubbornness, of the inhabitants of the region.
Golden, slightly cloudy, it is a Saison with an original Piedmontese character: all the raw materials are grown and processed without ever moving outside the region. Spicy aromas stand out, while on the palate it wins over for its pungent, dry and thirst-quenching aroma. The body is medium and the foam persistent.
Pair it with vegetable dishes, grilled fish or summer salads.

Birra Carrù is an independent craft microbrewery from Piedmont, Italy.
A dry Provencal classic made of cinsault with grenache, syrah and merlot too, this is bright and summery with strawberries, pomegranate spritz and richer vanilla aromas. Crunchy-fresh with sour-red grapefruit to start, it then mellows with a creamy edge to the strawberry fruit.
The term “mutemuka” can be roughly translated as “a sake made with pure intentions or without ornamentation.” Mutemuka’s signature Sake is made from two varieties of rice the brewery grows organically. For their Moto [starter mash] they use Kaze Naruko a strain of ‘Sake rice’, but the majority of the rice used is Hino-Hikari a prized ‘table rice’. Sake made with table rice tend to be more robust and richer in palate weight due to the proteins, fats and amino acids that become involved in the fermentation. The ‘Mutemuka’ is initially aged for about half a year at room temperature before release resulting in a beautifully full-bodied Sake. Mutemuka has dominant aromas of yeast and fragrant rice and a rich palate with notes of Jasmine rice and white radish with an earthy, savoury taste. This Sake has great food matching applications because of it’s unique savoury palate. Perfect with salty snacks or ingredients like coastal greens or oysters; seafood dishes; or hard cheeses like Tête de Moine.
We think Braida makes the best Brachetto in the world. It is a highly aromatic sweet wine, which
is most often produced in the Charmat method (fermentation in a pressurized tank to create
bubbles). Braida’s Brachetto is soft, fruity, and a beautiful deep rose colour. It smells intensely
floral and slightly musky, with plenty of ripe red strawberry and raspberry on the palate. It is not
cloying, and has a fantastic refreshing finish. This is the best wine to match with chocolate.
Vin Santo (pronounced Vin san-toh), which means “holy wine”, has various theories surrounding its origins. One of the most famous stories tells of a Franciscan monk, who would use it to celebrate Holy Mass. Later, it was more-commonly known for its “holy” or curative power regarding the treatment of ailments. Golden amber colour with rich, luminous reflections. Intense and complex bouquet; perfumed with scents of raisins combined with aromas of apricots, figs, dried fruit, wood, and honey fused with aromatic notes of a great personality. Full and warm palate with a velvety texture, sweet delicate notes and an extraordinary finish.

The ‘Vigna Senza Nome’ (no-name vineyard) has a highly aromatic nose which is characteristic of
the Moscato d’Asti. It has delicate notes of grapes, orange blossoms, jasmine and elderflowers. Soft
floral notes and the sweet primary grape aromas are translated well onto the palate. Pleasantly
refreshing, with soft notes of orange blossom and honeyed stone fruit with a clean finish. A
beautiful, high-quality Moscato for any occasion.
One of the most recognised estates in Bandol, thanks largely to US wine merchant Kermit Lynch, who’s sung its praises since the 70s. Lulu Peyraud, who ran the estate with her the late husband Lucien from the 30s, is still gong strong at 103. Incredible. The rosé is a blend of approximately 55% mourvèdre, 25% grenache and 20% cinsault.
“The Bandol Tempier Rosé offers a unique blend of complexity and freshness. It has a fine structure, with no tannin. The high-quality care given to the vines and the diversity of the terroirs produce a flavorful intensity and a strong typicity.”Winemaker’s notes.
