Linda’s Holiday Picks

Benjamin Bridge Piquette Stocking Stuffer


Everyone is talking about Piquette, but what exactly is Piquette wine?

Winemaking traditionally includes crushing and pressing the grapes; piquette is made with the leftover pulp, stems, and seeds from those grapes, also known as the “pomace.” This residue is placed in a fermentation vessel with water and the end result is a tasty refreshing beverage that is low in alcohol and has a gentle fizz.

This Holiday Pack from Benjamin Bridge not only makes a great stocking stuffer but also gives you three different and distinctive Piquette wines to try. This is a “buy one for me, buy one for someone on your Holiday List” kind of product.

The set includes:

  • BENJAMIN BRIDGE PIQUETTE – Hazy Golden in colour with aromas reminiscent of ruby red grapefruit with just a touch of lime zest. On the palate, lively citrus notes balanced nicely with hints of lime and lovely maritime sea salt.
  • BENJAMIN BRIDGE PIQUETTE WILD – Sea foam green in colour with distinct aromas of mango, papaya, on the first sip your tongue will say “Wow”! So lively and vibrant, think lemon peel and ocean minerals interlaced with a nice touch of salinity.
  • BENJAMIN BRIDGE PINK PIQUETTE – my favourite, this piquette has delicately infused organic Rosehip and Elderflower, deep pink in colour in the glass releasing aromas of a tropical flowers. Take a sip to experience this light and refreshing almost weightless beverage, with flavours of elderflower and rose hips. Delish!
