This beautiful wine is made from the Regent grape variety using ‘méthode traditionnelle’. The base wine is put in bottles along with yeast and a small amount of sugar, called the ‘liqueur de tirage’, stopped with a crown cap and stored in a wine cellar horizontally for a secondary fermentation. Our wine is the riddled using mechanised equipment called a gyropallette.
We commissioned local artist Tim Watson to draw the wonderfully stunning view from the vineyard, the Carneddau Mountain Range!
“I love the mountains, my work journeys with intent, above, below and within mountainous landscapes. Discovering with line, colour and text where that love resides.” Tim Watson

Want to know more about Regent……
Regent is a dark-skinned inter-specific hybrid grape variety, used for making wine. It has both European Vitis Vinifera and American vine species in its pedigree and a broad resistance against the most significant fungal diseases which affect grapes, such as downy mildew.
Regent was created in 1967 by Professor Gerhardt Alleweldt at the Geilweilerhof Institute for Grape Breeding by crossing Diana, a Silvaner x Müller-Thurgau cross and thus a Vitis vinifera variety, with the interspecific hybrid Chambourcin. Experimental plantings followed in 1985, and it received varietal protection in 1994 and was released for cultivation in the first German region in 1996. It is at present among the most important new fungal-resistant quality grape variety world-wide, especially in German wine regions.
