Wine Wine Menu

“a wine should tell you the story of the place it came from” – Jean Claude Berrouet, Chateau Petrus.

Welcome to The Little Gloster’s new wine list, we are offering something a little different.

The wines on our list are predominately sourced from small artisan growers who work sustainably, organically and biodynamically in the vineyard and with minimal intervention in the winery.

We’re talking farming that is labour intensive (some producers even use horses rather than tractors), while all of the picking and selection is done by hand. Yields are low, too, with grapes coming mostly from old vines. And indigenous yeasts are de rigueur for fermentation.

Several wines on the list are made without the addition of Sulphur dioxide and are unfiltered and unfined. In short, we’ve fallen in love with wine that truly reflects the place from where it originates – from the quirks of the vintage, to the personality of the grower.

You may notice the lack of wines from the new world, this isn’t because we don’t like them but more they seem to be taking longer to catch up with the old world in adopting more natural practices. Quite romantic that the old are teaching the new – new tricks again.

What do these wines taste like? Delicious, we think. They range from light to medium-bodied, and are fresh and vibrant – but most importantly, these wines are great with our food.

We hope you enjoy them.
