News from Les Deux Cimes:
The New vintage 2020 is in the winery and under way!
After a fantastic summer grape growing season, the grapes have been processed and fermented in the winery, it is promising to be a great vintage. This was a low yield year, which gives us great concentration aromas, developed tannins and often low acidity in the final wines. Often to a winemaker's favour and delight!
The wines are heading into the ageing phase of their development, and bottling of the white wines will start in spring next year 2021.
The upcoming winery work.
As we arrive at the end of 2020, the barrel-aged wines from 2019 are reaching the optimal time in the oak casks, this is the perfect time for tasting and assessing the wines. After selection and filtration, the wines will be bottled, labelled and boxed, ready for sale and shipping to some of our lucky customers who have been patiently waiting for the new vintage to become available.
The ongoing pandemic and how it affects us:
As with a lot of businesses, this has been a very challenging year, and will probably continue to be for the coming foreseeable future.
However, the vineyard and winery continue to strive for quality and excellence in all aspect of production. The winery is open for visits and tastings, although limited to a maximum of 10 people ( reservation required ), with social and sanitary aspects in place. Deliveries ( now free in Switzerland from a minimum of 6 bottles ) and winery pick ups are still possible.
If you have any queries, questions or hesitations, please feel free to contact us at any time.
We look forward to welcoming you, your friends and family for a great experience at Les Deux Cimes winery and vineyard soon !
The Scottish connection !
I am very happy to announce the arrival of a new Whisky in Switzerland ! Made in collaboration with Adelphi Distillery, using some of my used oak casks.
The wine barrels are 300 litres, and the Swiss finished ,Scottish Bennrinnes 14 year old, have been further aged in my Pinot Noir Barriques. Used for the Pinot Noir Barrique, and the Black Magic wines.
An exciting project that has taken a few years to fruition, the whisky will be on limited sale and under reservation from the end of November 2020.
Please contact us directly, for further details and reservations.
