OVERVIEW
We customize this blend ourselves, with some very particular stylistic goals in the finished wine - aromatic intensity, exotic fruit flavors, guzzle-friendly. It’s this last part that is the most important, what we call the drinkability factor. The key is the vibrant acidity that keeps our French Sauvignon Blanc feel alive, energetic and humming with energy. Pique-Nique is very easy to drink (or guzzle).


The world of wine is getting smaller - never before has such an incredible diversity and quality of fine wine been available to more people, at affordable prices. Pique-Nique aims to celebrate these global connections that we make with each other every time we open a bottle. As you pour your glass and smell the bouquet that leaps from the glass, keep this in mind – the distances between us become smaller sip by sip.
