Founded in 1877 by Jean Bouillot the estate of Louis Bouillot is a specialist Crémant de Bourgogne producer now run by Jean-Claude Boisset and it produces a range of excellent Méthode Traditionnelle sparkling wines from sites across the Côte d’Or.
The freshness, finesse, and brightness of Brut Premier make it the perfect wine 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.
Raboso Piave is the finest indigenous vine of the Treviso district, one of the few native varieties of Veneto to survive the invasion of phylloxera that destroyed Europe’s viticulture in the late 1800s. The wine it produces has a dry, austere taste, fairly hard and sharp. It is aged in casks that blend and heighten the fragrances and flavours of the vine with the pleasant tones of oak. Ready to be drunk from its third year, this wine can be aged for several years. It is ideal served with spit-roasted and white meats, game, roasts and ripe cheeses.

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.
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.
Blonde, with deep golden reflections, it is a drinkable American Pale Ale. Fierce and full of character, it lets the herbaceous and wheat aromas accompany the aromatic nuances of hops to the sip. The finish is wisely bitter. The body is medium and the foam persistent.
Pair it with grilled meats, your favorite pizza or spicy Tex-Mex dishes.
