Nobody makes sparkling wine with Merlot grapes (so we should make it) because it has low acidity (so we will find the exact moment where there is a perfect balance between acidity and ripeness of the grapes). It’s something crazy (we need to find excellent enologists that want to follow us in this crazy project) and we have to communicate it in the right way (with a designer in love with the project and able to tell our story through the label).
It’s a unique wine (and it’s perfect for us).
It’s born. It’s Charme.
