We offer a wine refill scheme in-store, selling our fabulous house Red and White wine in reusable swing-top glass bottles. The bottle is yours to keep and bring back for a refill. We aim to reduce waste & recycling as well as the environmental cost of shipping heavy glass bottles to and from the vineyard.
We import our wine directly from a small family Vineyard in the Loire Valley, Domaine Nebout by the pallet load in l0L bag-in-boxes. By importing directly we can offer great quality wine at an affordable price. The wine is Vegetarian / Vegan and no egg whites or fish innards are used in the winemaking process
The Nebout family have been independent winegrowers in the Saint Pourçain region for over forty years. The region is a small one, covering 600 hectares, and is situated in the Val de Loire, north of the Auvergne. The family have slowly expanded their vineyard until it now covers 30 hectares spread around the region. In 2009 Saint Pourçain was granted “Apellation d’Origine contrôlée” (AOC) status, which is only awarded to wine of particular quality.
Saint Pourçain vineyards contain a wide variety of soils or “terroirs”, and the climate varies according to altitude (which ranges from 200 to 460 metres above sea-level). The winegrower’s skill lies in carefully matching grape with “terroir” to produce an interesting variety of quality wines. The Nebout family are committed to maintaining a traditional approach, while taking full advantage of modern winegrowing techniques.
The Blanc Tradition is made using 80% Chardonnay and 20% Tressaillier, a grape which is only found in the Saint-Pourçain region. The vines are up to 20 years old, and are planted in clay-limestone or sandy soil, depending on the grape.
The Rouge Tradition comes from 80% Gamay and 20% Pinot Noir, and its vines can be up to 35 years old. They are planted in sandy and gravelly soil or (for the Pinot noir) in clay-limestone soil.
Over the last ten years the Nebout family have regularly been awarded medals for both their reds and their whites, and have frequently been cited in the Hachette guide and in the press.
