“SO2” is an atypical wine, which is also reflected on the label. It is a wine that stands out from the crowd and that dares to stand alone. Intense red color, aroma and taste of red fruits and has a slight bubbling effect on the palate. If you want to stand out from the crowd, bring a bottle of SO2 under your arm for your upcoming dinner… The wine does not contain added sulphur. The grapes are treaded by foot everyday for 3 weeks.
SO2 goes well as an apéritif, tapas and charcuterie.
Only 2000 bottles per. year.
