2022 Piquette Pinot Noir/Pinot Meunier

Crafted in the spirit of experimentation, our foray into this style of winemaking blends our thirst for innovative fermentation with our focus on sustainability.

Piquettes are popping up across our country’s winegrowing regions – and for good reason. They are simply delicious and boast the refreshing, effervescent character of a lightly sparkling wine but in a unique, lower-alcohol style. They are also a nod to our desire to make the most out of every drop of the fruits of our labour.

Made by re-fermenting our grape skins and stems after first pressing, these were the refreshments of choice for French agricultural and vineyard workers looking to quench their thirst but still carry on with their work. Think wine but dialed back a touch.

Pink peppercorn in colour, with a slightly cloudy and effervescent character, a result of secondary fermentation in bottle - this “farmhouse-style” wine beverage is fun and funky. Aromas of strawberry, raspberry and herbs are complemented by a lifted floral character.

The palate is thirst-quenching with its slightly fizzy and red berry profile. Lightly reminiscent of a raspberry, kettle-soured beer with tart acidity. The perfect drink for Spring - we plan to enjoy this park side, poolside, beachside, etc..


8.4% ABV

Our “Pinot Piquette” was crafted by taking the gently-pressed grape skins and stems of our Rosé-destined Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, rehydrating them with water for a couple of days and pressing them again.

The resulting juice was fermented in both stainless steel tanks and aged barrels to produce an interesting, cloudy beverage that is reminiscent of skin contacted wines. The wine is bottled while still fermenting to capture a small amount of natural effervescence. Drink well-chilled.
