Rivesaltes is one of the great sweet wines of the world. 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 additional vintages available.

Wow! Delicious Intense flavour. Dried fruits, raisins and brown sugar. Sweet, but still so incredibly fresh. Resembles a sherry.
Superb dessert wine. Could live for many more years
Some port like qualities. Raisin, baking spice. Alcohol apparent.
