French Wines & Spirits in CAPE TOWN
The monasteries were deeply involved in distillation of alcohol and the development of fortified liqueurs and spirits from fruit and herbs. The pure, clear liquid of the distilled alcohol is named Eau-de-Vie (Water of Life) a very fitting description. Famous spirits such as Cognac and Calvados symbolise the peak of this ancient knowledge.
I have always loved French wine and a meal in France is not complete without a bottle (or 2) of wine. It was a natural progression for me to offer wines and spirits to accompany my beautiful cheeses in my shop. I have started building up a small but good quality range of wines and spirits. As with my cheeses, I decided I would focus on some highly reputed producers representing the best areas of French wine.
When you visit my shop you will find wines from Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, the Loire, the Rhone, Midi-Pyrenees and Provence. I am stocking aged Cognac, Armagnac, Calvados from Normandy and Creme-de-Fruit ( fruit liqueurs). I extend my range to match my clients requirements. Do check with me what is currently in stock.
