Item details

  • Description +
    • As early as 1531, the monks at the Benedictine monastery of Saint Hiliare began making wine in an unconventional way. Instead of using oak barrels as usual, the monks fermented the wine in glass bottles, which gave the wine its natural bubbles. 100 years later, the monastery was visited by the monk Dom Perignon who learned the method from there and took it with him to his own district. Since then, the myth lives on that Champagne was the first district where sparkling wines were created.

      When the French says Vouvray, they are referring to the sparkling wine from the Loire Valley, one of the most sought-after wines in the world. The wines, made from Chenin Blanc grapes, has a unique flavor profile that is both fruity and tart and known for its high quality and elegance, a drink perfect for parties and virtuoso vibraphone playing!
