wines

Our wines represent the purity and authenticity of the vineyards they are coming from. All grapes are carefully selected and hand-picked and fermentations are all natural. The only compound added to the wine is sulphur, no other additions are made. The wines are bottled without fining or filtering. Charivari wines can be fresh, complex, rich or exciting  but they all reflect the vineyards and are results of a simple winemaking. These wines are truly cheerful and at their best when enjoyed with great company!

L'Aventure Nocturne

This wine is made from 100% organic Merlot grapes. The grapes are hand-picked and naturally fermented in small open-top stainless steel vats. The extraction is done by hand (pigeage) during alcoholic fermentation. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barrels and the wine is racked about 2 times per year. The wine is bottled without fining or filtering and therefore natural deposit may appear in the bottle.

The wine has ripe fruit character with some earthy and spicy aromas. Great to combine with good dinners and long nights. The label is designed by Jenna Kunnas and it shows the biodiversity of the organic parcel where the wine comes from, and the magical adventure that takes place during the nights.

Le fruit défendu

Grapes for this wine come from a friendly neighbour's parcel. They are pressed and the juice settles in a cool temperature for about 24 hours. Both alcoholic and malolactic fermentations take place in French oak barrels, though no new oak is used. The wine matures in barrels for about 12 months and is then bottled without fining or filtering. This wine is everything but a traditional white Bordeaux, for many reasons. 

The name "Le Fruit Défendu" is French for the forbidden fruit. This wine is an interesting mystery, somewhat forbidden, as the beautiful unique flower on the label. The artwork is done by Jenna Kunnas.

Vin Abandonné

The wine is made from 100% organic Semillon, that was picked and pressed in September 2004. The fermentation took place in an oak barrel and it has since been maturing in our cellar for over 10 years. It has been racked once in 2016 and then bottled straight from the barrel with no additions. Only 245 bottles were made.

Vin Abandonné wine has aged for 150 months in a French oak barrel. It's beautifully oxidised and filled with flavours of almonds, nuts and raisins. At its best when served as an digestif, with cheeses or with a classic French onion soup!
