Get ready for a summer sensation with Picpoul de Pinet, the wine that captures the essence of the Languedoc region. Fresh, zesty, and infused with coastal charm, it’s the perfect choice for warm-weather enjoyment.
Picpoul de Pinet is synonymous with the Languedoc wine region in the south of France and has become a firm favourite for summer drinking with its distinctive fresh, zesty style and ahint of an almost salty character. It is made from Picquepoul Blanc grapes that are grown in vineyards overlooking the sweep of the Mediterranean from Montpellier round to Beziers and beside the saltwater Etang de Thau, France’s second largest lake. Picpoul de Pinet gets its unique personality due to the cooling marine breezes that counterbalance the hot, dry Mediterranean climate, enabling the grapes to not only retain their freshness but also to acquire their appealing saline hint.
The Etang de Thau is a protected nature reserve full of shellfish, and oysters are also cultivated in large quantities, which make a delicious match with a chilled glass of Picpoul de Pinet from Ormarine, the largest producer of this crisp, refreshing white wine.
If you would like to try and learn more about this classic pairing, we are offering 2 lucky winners the chance to each win a case of 12 bottles of Ormarine’s brand new Picpoul de Pinet which has just arrived in Sainsbury’s, along with a pair of tickets to the Ormarine Picpoul & Oysters Masterclass led by top wine experts either at Foodies Festival in Winchester on 15 July or at Foodies Festival in Oxford on 26 August.
Ormarine’s new Picpoul de Pinet has an elegant vivacity with generous aromas of white flowers, passion fruit and citrus with zesty lemon notes. It is certified Terra Vitis for sustainable viticulture so is also kind to the environment. The perfect summer wine!
