Grape Varieties

This ancient fruit’s metamorphosis into wine is as old as alcohol itself and yet the varieties, styles, and flavour profiles on offer are infinite, each with their own burgeoning personality. Traditional varieties such as Pinot Noir so synonymous with Burgundy and Champagne; the distinctive Nebbiolo grape typified by Barolo; the hallowed Cabernets and Merlots of Bordeaux or less well known varietals such as Sagavin and Clariette; the characteristics of each unique grape and its expression in the glass is the crux of every wine-maker’s journey.
