Food / wine marriages...

These marriages we sometimes discovered entirely by accidental "meetings" between a dish and a wine, they may equally be associated with events that seasoned our life with happiness.

When you go down into your cellar to look for one of our wines, we describe its style to help you find the perfect match.. Some friends who are chefs or sommeliers have kindly suggested some specific matches with some of our wines. Our colleagues in wine shops will also be happy to guide you in your choices.
