From the suppliers of top Michelin restaurants in Britain, this stunning wine will not disappoint you.
Evocation of the black colour, essence of a vine that comes from afar.
Roots. The past tense of the verb to be.
At first, be in the land, making the wine.
A challenge to this reclaim the roots. Dark.
Eros hiding. On the label, a feathered serpent.
A breathe, and reveals a hidden wine.
The ancient myth of Cupid and Psyche feeds the search for an obscure wine.
And yet loved unconditionally.
