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.
The freshness, finesse, and brightness of Brut Premier make it the perfect Champagne for festive occasions. Its structured texture, richness, and length are distinctly winey. It is a full, complex wine that is both rich and powerful, whilst remaining a great classic.
Pezat is a blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. The wine comes from a specific vineyard called ‘La Plagnolle’ which we converted into a vineyard that would sit happier in the Saint Emilion Appellation than Bordeaux. Vine density was doubled and the height of the original vines was reduced by half. This wine has complex aromas of rose petals and plums follow through to a medium to full body. Round, soft tannins and a savory finish.
Light to medium density with purple edges. Lifted smokey, dark cherry and pastille aromas that keep you returning to smell them. Perfect ‘sweet fruit’ flavours on the initial palate and then a slight maraschino cherry note. Sweet oak and juicy acidity give a long lasting flavour combination.

Dolcetto wines are known for cherry and licorice with some prune flavours and a slight bitter finish reminiscent of almonds. While the name implies sweetness, the wines are normally dry. The dark purple skin of Dolcetto grapes have high amounts of anthocyanins, which require only a short maceration time with the grape skin to produce a dark coloured wine. The amount of skin to contact affects the resulting tannin levels in the wine, with most winemakers preferring to limit the maceration time to as short as possible.
This winery has obtained a certification for biodynamic production and offers a wine that represents the energy and characteristics of the specific “terroir”
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.

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.
Artus is an artistic translation of our local Gin Gin clone into wine. It is a provocative, complex and textural wine exuding the seductive spirit of “old world” chardonnay. The vines have been managed to allow only dappled light into the fruiting zone. This promotes flavor development, low tannins and bright levels of natural acidity. The fruit is farmed in the cool southern end of Margaret River. The tiny 100g Gin Gin clusters are hand harvested at first light to preserve freshness of fruit.
Flavours of fresh nectarines and candied pecan nuts are supported by aromas of poached pears and marzipan.
