Piquette 2021


Jenny and Jim affectionately refer to Piquette as the 'hot dog' of wine the world. An oddity that's very popular, perfect for summer, and makes use of all those things you weren't sure how to use fully (so pomace in the case of piquette). F&F's piquette is created by rehydrating and re-fermenting the pomace (skins, stems, seeds) of their already-pressed grapes from 'Do Nothing' and a few other mystery wines. Bottled before the completion of fermentation for a fun, dry, low-abv fizz. Flavor-wise think 'Oops! All Berries' cereal, Kriek sour ale, melted red otter pops, smarties and green peppercorns.
