What is Piquette?

Piquette at Kramer Vineyards

At Kramer Vineyards, we embrace this tradition by upcycling grape pressings to create our special fizzy drink. Experience our Piquette, a refreshing alternative with lower alcohol content and light, sparkling nature perfect for various occasions.

Crafting Piquette

Our Piquette is carefully crafted from Müller-Thurgau grape pomace. After rehydration and steeping in water, the pomace undergoes a second pressing, accompanied by marc from red fermentation, lending a delicate rosy hue. The must is then fermented in stainless steel, creating a harmonious balance.

Enjoying Piquette

Savor the delightful flavors of our Piquette with its fine and plentiful bubble structure. Experience the vibrant notes of pomegranate, cran-raspberry, rhubarb, and tart apple, perfectly balanced by hints of earth and spice. Whether it's a hot summer day, a picnic, or a refreshing pick-me-up during the harvest season, Piquette is the versatile drink that complements any occasion.

Piquette shines in cocktails, adding a unique twist to spritzers or sangria. Pair it with seafood, salads, grilled veggies, or light appetizers. Its lower alcohol content makes it ideal for daytime events. Celebrate sustainability and flavor with Piquette, a revitalized ancient libation.

Winemaker Notes
o make our Piquette, we used the pressings from our Müller-Thurgau grapes. The pomace was rehydrated with well water, then steeped for four days before being pressed again, along with marc from a red fermentation, to give the liquid a rosy hue. The must was fermented in stainless steel, and hard press Pinot Gris was blended in for balance. The wine was bottled in August 2021 to finish fermentation under a crown cap, creating a gentle sparkle.

Piquette is a versatile and refreshing drink that can be enjoyed on its own or mixed into cocktails. Try it in spritzers or sangria recipes. Serve chilled on hot summer days with seafood, salads, grilled veggies, or light appetizers. It's perfect for daytime events and as a lighter alternative to wine.
