Tell me about this wine….

Where do we begin? This skin contact wine isn’t officially an orange wine, but you certainly wouldn’t be blamed for thinking that given its colour. The cloudy and almost ethereal appearance is only heightened by the floral notes filling your nose. Muller Thurgau is a stunning white wine at the best of times, but you leave those grape skins on, and magic happens, heightening the perfumes and taste to become a wine that is a true exploration of the grape and of the terroir. A true representation of the cold but sunny climate and the high altitude landscape makes this wine crisp, fresh yet deep and complex. The experience is heightened by knowing the story behind the bottle, which includes the stunning label, comprised of stamps that Andreas’ dear Uncle collected and handed down to him to live on through the wine label.

This Wine Is A UK Exclusive & Staff Selection

Tell Me About This Vineyard….

Andrea Barbieri is one of the most promising young winemakers in Italy. We do not say that lightly. We have a special place in our hearts for Andrea for many reasons – firstly, his youth offers him frictionless innovation in his wines, taking inspiration from France and turning traditional wines into exciting experimental Italian wines that are cult classics in the making, all from a tiny unit in Aosta. Now, here is the big reason why these wines are so unique – every bottle from his collection is not only a UK exclusive, it’s an exclusive even outside a 20-mile radius of his winery. Andrea only makes around 1000 bottles of each of his wines yearly, and we have 10% of them. On the back of every bottle, you will see the bottle number, handwritten by Andrea and his Mum. This is a little bottle of everyday luxury, something no one else has, that tastes absolutely out of this world.

Surrounded by raw and rugged mountains, we have Andrea, a passionate guy who loves wine, doing what winemakers do best, creating drinkable art. To buy a bottle of Andrea’s wine is to experience something new and exciting. Every sip brings invigoration and regeneration; just a little of Andea’s infectious spirit lives in every pour. So watch this space; this certainly won’t be our last collection with him.

All their wines are neither filtered nor clarified. A minimum amount of sulfur is added pre-bottling.
