A hidden gem of a vineyard found in South West France...
Midway between Toulouse and Biarritz, the Saint Mont vineyard is situated in a land rich in history and dotted with picturesque villages and Romanesque churches, bearing witness to times gone by. Its vines can be found where the two main Saint Jacques de Compostelle routes cross. The Saint Mont vineyard dates from 1050 when the Benedictines founded the Saint-Mont monastery. Pilgrims heading along the Saint Jacques de Compostelle route spread the reputation of the wines of this area.
Nowadays known as the vineyard of the South West and bordered by the nearby Pyrenees, the Atlantic Ocean and the Adour valley, this appellation offers a distinctive palette of colours and styles and a character as resilient as its growers!
A great example of a non-supermarket wine here, rare anywhere in the UK and we can offer it at significantly less than the RRP of €10-14 (Euros). As mentioned above, chill well and leave to breathe for 5 minutes if you can wait that long! This white is a little different and we enjoyed it, tasted June 2022.
