Saint-Hilaire Picpoul de Pinet

PIC SH B

Classic crisp and easy-drinking Picpoul de Pinet

Our Picpoul de Pinet is a worthy ambassador of the ancient Piquepoul grape variety which rarely grown outside of a small area few miles around our villages of Pinet and Montagnac.  Five years ago this wine was virtually unknown in the UK but has since exploded in popularity and is now a mainstay of many UK French restaurants.

This wine has been selected by the Saint Hilaire team after a rigorous tasting of wines made by neighbouring vineyards.
