New Pizzolato Prosecco Spumante
From our partners Biokult in Austria and Vignobles Raymond in France come three unique organic rosé wines that are sure to make a splash this spring.
The Demeter Certified Biodynamic
Biokult Zweigelt Rosé of the Niederösterreich – Qualitätswein appellation is very appealing as a light and easy to understand rosé. Made of Austria’s most widely grown red grape Zweigelt (pronounced TSVYE-gelt). Zweigelt is a red wine grape originating from a 19th century Austrian crossing of two older varietals, Blaufränkisch and St Laurent.Low residual sugar gives it a very pleasant appeal, and the rose color with slight violet hues is visually alluring. The taste is of light red fruit, strawberry & raspberry, with soft tannins. This is a good food wine, pairing well with pasta, light meals, risottos & cheese.
Demeter Certified Biodynamic Biokult Rosé Secco of the Neusiedlersee appellation is made with 100% Pinot Noir. This beautiful sparkling wine has a nose of intense cherry, cherry blossoms, plums and flowers. It has a red berry bouquet, with a crisp, fresh fruit forward taste. This is a fantastic picnic or summer party wine.
The family property of the domaine du ChÃ¢teau de Lagarde has been built up over the years by successive generations. The Raymond family has a long history of growing wine, dating back to 1850. Today, in order to look after their heritage, they carry on using a special mixture of ancestral tradition and the most efficient technology. Located in the Entre-Deux-Mers, not far from Bordeaux, their wines have grown in the villages of Saint-Laurent-du-Bois, Saint-Martial, Saint-Felix de Conclude since medieval times.
The Michlits family is one of the most creative and influential organic winegrowing families in Austria. Headed by Werner and Angela Michlits, their pro
ducts and production methods are
revolutionary for the region. Notonly have they been able to understand and implement the use of non-trimmed vines in the region, but the use of biodynamic methods and the translation of these into new production standards are awe inspiring.
These beautiful and refreshing rosés are now available. Please let me know if you would like to receive a sample bottle of these wines, or if you have any additional questions about these or any of our fine organically grown wines.
