Collection: Special Occasion

Is an anniversary coming up? Is someone graduating soon? Are you going to meet up with that friend that you haven't seen in years? Or do you just want to create a special occasion by opening up an exclusive wine? 

An evening quickly becomes special with a sparkling wine, and especially with a bottle of Champagne Royale Réserve Brut from Philipponnat! A Champagne house with 498 years of history. From this you can conclude that they have experience in making quality wines!

White Wine

One of the most beautiful Chardonnays from South Africa is surely The White Lady from Warwick. It is a beautiful elegant full style Chardonnay that is more reminiscent of Burgundy than a New World Chardonnay. Made from a combination of grapes from cool slopes and warm slopes, and entirely made from wild yeasts. This is a wonderful example of the winemaker's exceptional skills! (Be sure to take it out of the fridge at least three quarters of an hour in before drinking)

The Oppidum of Château de Gaure is a full-bodied wine with a complexity that far exceeds its price level. A white Limoux with an unexpected depth. Powerful and mineral at the same time. Have you tried many Chardonnays and are you looking for a new experience? Then this combination of Chardonnay, Mauzac and Chenin Blanc is a wonderful surprise!

Red Wine

A beautiful project by the winemaker of Opus One (min. €300-400 per bottle) in collaboration with Warwick in South Africa is the Seriously Old Dirt. A classic Bordeaux blend made in South Africa which has the New World characteristics of apparent fruit, but also the depth one can expect from a well made Bordeaux. It's an amazing glass of wine for €30!

Then we have the classic Italian trio of heavyweights which make every evening special. First we have the smooth and full-bodied Amarone that is made from grapes that are dried 30% before wine is made. The Amarone Marne 180 from Tedeschi is the classic example of quality from the region. The family has been making wine for almost 400 years and they own one of the first Valpolicella vineyards.

The Brunello di Montalcino of Castello Banfi can of course not be missed in a line-up of great Italian wines. Elegance, juiciness, fruit, and the classic spices present in 100% Sangiovese. This is a wine that will never be boring and will always give you something new to discover.

Then we finish off with the king of Italian wines, the Barolo. The Barolo "Serralunga d'Alba" from Fontanafredda is a classic example of what a Barolo should be like. Light in colour, rose petals and elegance on the nose, but the weightiness, tannins and high acidity you expect in the mouth. This is a wine that needs food to accompany it. Or at the moment of cooking, carafe the wine and then, as the last wine of the night, drink it after dinner. 

Last we have a unique find, and certainly for the 2017 vintage. The Malbec Argentino by winemaker Catena Zapata uit Argentinië is een ongeëvenaarde wijn. Partially made from 90 year old vines dating back to before the phylloxera (phylloxera) epidemic. The year 2017 was the transition from El Niño to La Niña with high temperatures towards the end of the growing season.This has resulted in low yields of grapes with high concentration. Together with a beautiful label, this is a wine that can wait at least another 10 years for that special night, but by pulling it open now the night definitely will be completely unforgettable!
