Alsace is a most beautiful region of France whose wines have long been favoured by those working in the wine trade! It is an area of excellent Co-operatives and small growers.
We are lucky to have the wines of Domaine Bruno Sorg, Domaine Mittnacht and Domaine Weinbach Faller on our list – all great exponents of Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Muscat and Gewurtraminer.
The Loire River rises in the Ardeche, runs North then West before flowing into the Atlantic. Along its course a myriad of wine styles are produced – White, Rose, Red Fizz and Pudding Wines and so careful tasting and selection is key. Many of our growers have been known to us for years but we are always keen to follow an unknown but rising star! Domaine Andre Dezat has always been a source of fine Sancerre, whatever the colour. He is now joined by his cousins Domaine Pierre & Alain Dezat, fine producers in their own right. Our Vouvray is sourced from Domaine Vigneau – Chevreau, an organic/biodynamic producer whose singe vineyard Clos Rougemont offers top value. The Vignerons de Valencay produce a wonderful varietal Sauvignon Blanc, ideal with soft goats cheese and Domaine de la Noe produce first class Muscadet from Neptune’s Vineyard!
