Stará Škola means Old School in Czech & this wine got this name for two reasons: grapes come from the oldest vines in Herzánovi's vineyards & it's been made the way our ancestors used to make wine - a field blend. By mixing all white wine grape varieties: Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer, Grüner Veltliner, Sylvaner, Neuburger, Müller Thurgau, & Pálava that grow in this particular parce you get magic. This is a beautiful, multi-layered wine that surprises the drinker by how harmonious these disparate grapes are done together. You might not know it is a field blend if not told. It's earthy & herbaceous (sage, basil, sarsaparilla), but there is still plenty of grape expression. Widescreen but not unfocused, those gnarled old vines come together, harmonize, gel. One part of the wine was pressed directly, one had a few days of skin contact. Both are fermented & aged in used oak barrels for almost a year. Bottled without fining, filtration and absolutely no added sulphites, This wine is as simple & easy to drink/get your head around as you want, and also has complexities that only come out of such a big mix and the super ancient developed knotty vines.

€25.00These Grenache grapes are carefully selected from Philippe Brand’s friend’s biodynamic vineyard in the south of France. They are then taken back to Alsace where they have undergone semi carbonic maceration. When blended together, you get this concentrated cherries and sour plum mix, which is balanced by the prominent acidity. This wine suits anyone who enjoys a light red, berry explosion, with some additional depth of a skin contact orange wine.
€24.00This is an exciting wine made from Riesling that comes from the same vineyard plot, but grapes that were harvested in 2015 and 2017. Winemaker Philippe Brand decided to blend the 2 vintages together which evolved into this petrol nosed, medium-bodied, kiwi and rich honey melon wine. Beautifully balanced with the acidity and the fresh finish continuing to travel.

Crémant de Loire is a Traditional Method (formerly called Champenoise Method). To deserve this designation, the grapes must be harvested by hand in crates and pressed according to a specific program to keep only the best of the juice. At La Viaudière, they mainly use Chardonnay and a little bit of Chenin to compose what is now a classic vintage. The Chenin will give its structure to the wine and the Chardonnay, its fruit, its fine bubbles, and its elegance. This Crémant de Loire Blanc is an ideal companion for sweet evenings with friends or family. We also recommend it to celebrate a great event: wedding, baptism, communion or birthday ... It will delight your guests by bringing friendliness and freshness.
Clean, crisp, and fruit-forward. Very refreshing, light nose with some fruits, pear, and peach, subtle mineralogy, good bubbles but not overly aggressive, long lingering fruit finish. Dry, medium body, light complexity, but balanced.View full product details
