Why do we call it “Pirouettes”?

Because we are having great fun with this project, and it gives us great joy!

Because the blends we make together are like fancy pirouettes – beautiful artistic figures which are the result of a certain know-how.

Because together, we free ourselves from the norms of the masses, from a standardized taste, making room for emotions, something new, and to joy.

Because this project also includes a new way of wine marketing. Note that this is not about usual trading practices.

I am happy to carry out this magnificent project together with my associates. Thanks a million for the trust you have given us!
