This summer, we are happy to introduce 2 new Organic producers from Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé.
This is not less than 6 new Sauvignon Blanc wines added to our range. Does it sound too much? Well, it was was in fact so difficult to choose, that we decided to offer you both producers!
Keep in mind that our selection is a work in progress, and even though we love all the wines that are brought to you, you are the ones who have the final word.
So take your pick!
