Customer Favourite

This is one of our not so hidden gems. If you haven't yet tried this exceptional artisan wine, it may be time to pop a bottle in your box!

"Delicious Syrah! Lovely and smooth and not too can almost taste that purity to it."

"We asked WAH for some suggestions for some everyday reds and this was our favourite. Not too heavy with a really good, fruity, mellow flavour."

"Easy on the palate, lightweight and full of flavour."

One of our hidden gems. Grower Bruno Gigondan runs his vineyard according to absolute respect for the environment, using a wild or ‘abandoned’ style of viticulture as well as an unusual form of demineralised rainwater, to provide perfect organic, natural growing conditions for his 65 year old vines. All the work on the vines is done by hand and it undergoes a long fermentation to extract all the flavour of the fruit.

Deep purple, expressive, ripe black fruit with violets and spice on the nose. Ripe blackberry, black pepper and rosemary palate and a long, fruit and spice finish.


About the vineyard

The tiny Domaine Gigondan is one of only two vineyards in France to collect, demineralise and recycle natural rainwater in the homeopathic preparations they use to treat the vines. Bruno and his wife Nanda believe in 'Wild Viticulture' where vines are left unpruned and to go their own sweet way. Every grape is hand selected and hand picked then reselected on sorting tables to make sure that only the very ripest and best go into the wine. These growers do what they do with such heart and grace - and they need our support as much as we need wines like these.
