Piquette Pre-release Party!

January 22 @ 11:30 am 4:30 pm

Enjoy a much needed break from the winter rains and enjoy a sneak peek at our all new Piquettes (aka summertime in a glass). We will have food from Big C BBQ and music by Toucan Jan beginning at 1 pm. Our winemaker will be on site as well to answer any questions and join in the fun.

What the heck is Piquette?

Piquette is a light, fizzy beverage made by adding water to the leftover skins, and fermenting what sugars are left. The technique is centuries-old, made by peasants and vineyard workers who would not receive quality grapes and would instead ferment the leftover skins. The resulting beverage was a fizzy, low-ABV drink that was light, refreshing and would give them a nice little buzz while working.

What does it taste like?

Think spritzer-esk. Typically falling around 4-9% alc, piquette is essentially wine grape flavored seltzer bursting with bright, funky & fun fruit flavor, destined for the spring & summertime sun.

What did we make?

We produced a number of piquette trials during the 2022 Harvest but ended up with two that formed the lion-share of our production. One Sangiovese and one Barbera. Both will be poured at the Party before their official release later this spring/summer.
