French Wine from Maison Ventenac

imgres

Stéphanie & Olivier Ramy, pictured above, who run the Maison Ventenac Estate in Cabardès, South of France, have produced a range of easy drinking wines that are all about respecting the vineyard’s terroir, and a winemaking process that delivers pure natural grape flavours. End of.

Many traditional winemakers forget when making their wines that the majority of British consumers drink their wine within 48 hours of their purchase. Meaning that most of their quality wines are drunk before they have reached their full potential!  Stéphanie & Olivier have addressed this early consumption by throwing away the rule book and making their wines ready to drink before they leave their winery. Their new perspective to winemaking is done without abandoning all that’s good from the traditionalists which is just perfect for we want to drink it NOW Brits.

This fresh thinking means that the consumer doesn’t have to read the ‘War & Peace’ on the evolution of wine. You just pull the cork and enjoy!
