What is Piquette
Piquette is a wine style that has been trending over the last few years, but its roots are old. It was originally produced as a refreshing, light and affordable drink for vineyard workers— it has seen a resurgence in popularity for the same reasons.
Piquette is made from the fresh grape pomace (skins and seeds) that remains after pressing out the juice for classically fermented white and Rosé wines.
There are still heaps of aromatics and some juice remaining in the pomace, so with the addition of some water it can be pressed again to make piquette.
Both of our LÜVO Piquettes are made from piquette combined with classically-fermented white wine and an extra fruity splash to create refreshing spritzers.
