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.
Region: Provence, France
Aromas of freshly cut peach, white flowers and brioche introduce a palate of porcelain tannin and fine lines of elegant texture and natural acidity, culminating in a complex array of stone fruits and subtle toast.
Region: Margaret River, WA
Pale straw. Tropical notes of passionfruit, grapefruit and blackcurrant combine with salty mineral notes. The palate is rich and weighty and full of flavours of grapefruit and blackcurrant along with green notes of nettle and capsicum. A subtle sea salt character leads to a long lingering mineral finish.
Pinot blanc, South Tyrol’s most important grape variety, has awakened from its slumber and has evolved a calling-card wine for the region. Schulthauser, having been vinified and bottled for the first time in 1982, is the consummate South Tyrolean Pinot blanc. This wine isn’t ostentatious, but is the consummate fresh-and-fruity Pinot blanc, the enjoyment of which is found both in its creamy softness and its lively acidity.
A premium aperitif and summer wine, it is also quite versatile when it comes to food pairing: it goes well not only with seafood and fish but also with delicate dishes made with wild fowl. It is especially recommended as an accompaniment to South Tyrolean Schlutzkrapfen.

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.
Includes a selection of strong & bitey hard cheeses, accompaniments and Cabernet Sauvignon;
- Bitto Dop 200g
- Trebbione di Pecora 200g
- Provolone del Monaco Dop 200g
- Calamaio Balsamic Compagnia Del Montale IGP 250ml

- Mario Fongo Tropea Red Onion IGP Lingue 150g
- Cabernet Sauvignon from Handpicked Wines 750ml
From the seventeenth century until 1935, in Carrù there were two famous spinning mills for silkworms. A traditional beer, even beer.
Golden and opalescent, it is an easy to drink Blanche. On the nose, summer scents of orange peel prevail; when tasted, it is the coriander that invades the mouth, closing in a well-balanced finish. The body is velvety, thanks to the wheat, and the persistent foam.
Pair it with finger food, fried and fish-based main courses or sushi and sashimi.
Color: opalescent blond
Alcohol content: 4.8% alc.
Birra Carrù is an independent craft microbrewery, but above all it is a family.
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.
Color: cloudy blond
Alcohol content: 5.6% alc.
Birra Carrù is an independent craft microbrewery from Piedmont, Italy.
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.
