Vintage notes

After a challenging rainy spring, conditions improved significantly during the summer, culminating in almost perfect weather in September, during the harvest. Our 2018 reds aren’t extraordinarily powerful as some as the previous vintages (2015 and 2016) but they display deep colours together with very specific aromatics. On the palate they are incredibly fresh, vibrant, and are endowed with refined and silky tannins.

Rebel is a sparkling wine, produced in a 30-year-old-vines vineyard planted at 900+ feet above sea level, which is rooted in sandy soils rich in fossils. Rebel is a fruit-driven Pét Nat, showing flavors of pear, citrus zest, and a touch of green apple with scents of broom flowers and a yeasty finish. It has soft carbonation and fine, tight bubbles.
