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.
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.
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.
