2015 "Blina" Barbera d'Asti
Agostino Pavia founded his eponymous estate although it is now run by his two sons, Giuseppe and Mauro. The familys crafts distinct Barbera from their vineyards in the village of Agliano Terme in the Asti DOCG of Piedmont, though they also have vineyards in Monferrato. Their 10 hectares of vines are planted not only to Barbera, but also Grignolino, Syrah, and Dolcetto. All work in the vineyard is done by hand, where the Pavia family firmly believes the mantra that great wine is made in the vineyard.
Giuseppe and Mauro believe that their cellar is the place where the terroir turns into wine. This Barbera d'Asti comes from a single vineyard, Blina. The wine is made from 100% Barbera that is fermented and aged in stainless steel to preserve its freshness and fruit quality. Intense aromas of red berries and plum lift from the glass with an undertone of juniper. The wine has fresh acidity and silky tannins, displaying lots of tension and purity of fruit. A long, lingering finish entices you back to the glass for another sip. Pair with light pasta dishes, pizza, or risotto.
2016 Roero Arneis DOCG
Grapes: 100% Arneis
Winemaking: The grapes are selected from vineyards located in the middle of the Roero area, in Santo Stefano Roero. The vineyards are approximately 25 years old and are planted with 4.500-5.000 vines per hectare. Harvest starts around mid-September and the grapes are first pressed and then clarified. Alcoholic fermentation occurs in stainless steel autoclave at lower temperature (10-12°C, 50-53° F) to preserve some natural CO2 from the fermentation.
Aging: Wine does not undergo malolactic fermentation to preserve acidity and freshness. The wine is held in stainless steel tanks until bottling.
Description: Pale straw yellow color with fresh floral, citrus and melon aromas with hints of almond. An unoaked, dry, medium bodied white wine with crisp acidity, the Arneis is well-balanced, elegant wine with good complexity and a lingering finish.
Food Pairings: As an aperitif with light hors d’oeuvres, crudités, seafood, salads, light soups, simply prepared veal, pork, chicken and creamy cheese.
NV PRIVILÈGE ROSÉ DRY Traditional Method
Gamay, Cabernet, Airen et Côt. The proportion of each grape variety necessarily changes each year to maintain the House style.
After a meticulous selection of the base wines, our wine-making team carefully created the blend of Privilège Rosé Dry. This “still” blend was bottled together with a “liqueur de tirage”- a mix composed of sugar and selected yeasts. Into the bottle, sugars were consumed by the yeast which transformed them into alcohol and also naturally released carbonic gas which made the bubbles into the wine. Each bottle was then aged for 9 months “sur lattes”, which added aromatic complexity to the wine. A dry dosage gave the final touch to this elegant cuvee.

2016 Reserve Selection Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc
The 2016 vintage across California was a near-perfect growing season. A mild winter and spring led to a steady mild July and August, followed by warm days at the end of the season for the perfect ripeness. With warm days and cool nights in the summer, grape growers were able to maintain ideal acid levels with balanced, concentrated fruit flavors. The Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon in this Reserve wine were picked between August 26th and September 24th .
After whole cluster pressing the grapes, the juice was fermented in 100% French Oak (mostly Seguin Moreau, Dargaud and Jaegle barrels) to balance the bright fruit with a subtle unctuosity. Stirring the lees gives the wine a creamier mid palate. This wine stayed in barrel for only 4 months. This produces a wine with crisp acidity and captures the flinty, citrus aroma and flavor characteristics of this versatile variety. Our 2016 Napa Valley Reserve Selection Sauvignon Blanc opens with inviting aromas of kaffir lime and guava with hints of honeysuckle. Flavors of stone fruits and gooseberry are accented with a touch of lemongrass offering a crisp minerality to balance the creamy mid-palate and nice acidity.

The must is kept in stainless steel containers at -3°C, where it can be kept for months. When there is market demand, it is then transferred into autoclaves for temperature-controlled fermentation, microfiltered for purity and then bottled to keep the freshness and flavours intact.
