Experience a taste of one of the best wines in the world, the wine Rivesaltes is a great sweet wine. Produced in the Languedoc Roussillon region of SW France, these wines live for decades since they are fortified. They can be produced from both white and red grapes, although Grenache Noir, Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris, Muscat, Macabeu, and Malvasia prevail in the region. The wines are sweetened only with the natural grape sugars present at harvest. For this reason they are called Vin Doux Naturel.
These special wines make fantastic birth year gifts. Imagine drinking a wine born in the same year as you! But, they are also a perfect way to travel in time. These wines are like time capsules from another era. If you listen and taste carefully, these wines often have amazing stories to tell.
Inquire about other birth year wines; we have many vintages available.
Blend: 70% Grenache Noir / rest blend of Grenache Blanc, Gris and Maccabeo

Sweet without being cloying
A fun addition to our Christmas Day. Incredibly fresh and vibrant for a wine which is nearly as old as the grandparents. Much more fresh and vibrant than the grandparents, for example. Drank like a mature Madeira and was a great match for our Christmas pudding.
A sweet white from the south west of France, kept in barrels for 60 years and bottled about two years ago. Pale golden, smooth and sweet, drink as an aperitif or with dessert. Quite unusual and rather fine.
We only trade in fine wine. This is our expertise and passion. We're highly selective. Of 4,500 wines we taste each year, only 4% will make the grade.
