Pépé's Beret is not just wine. It’s attitude in a bottle. Named afer the French words Pépé which means "grandpa", and Béret, which is a traditional French cap, this wine is an ironic allusion to the famous clichés known to the Southern French population.By crafting this trendy looking wine our winemakers created a modern and fresh wine that still delivers the unique and delicious aromas of traditional French-style wines.
Drinking Pépé's Beret is savouring all the sunshine and winemaking expertise of the South of France in a cool and colourful packaging.
Why not grab a glass, maybe throw on a beret, and give yourself a taste of the “art de vivre à la française”...!
WinemakingThe grapes for this wine originate from distinct vineyards of our best Chardonnay vines. After a short maceration, the crop is gently pressed. Both the vinification as well as the maturing process is carried out under the influence of differently toasted French oak. After the fermentation, the fine yeast is stirred up periodically gaining the wine's velvety mouthfeel.
South of France
The landscapes of Gascony spread from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pyrenees, providing fascinating terroirs. Southern French sun-kissed days promote ripe grapes packed full of sunshine. On the other hand, the Atlantic brings chilly ocean breezes and cool nights which improve the lovely fruity aromas. Clay and sand soils store water during the rainy spring which is then released when the vines grow, enabling them to get through the dry summers.
