Vidal - Pinot Grigio - Riesling
2011 Briganti White
Today the vinification of hybrids remain forbidden in Europe and yet in Canada these grapes thrive, and so we too prefer to play outside the rules, taking the best of old world and current wine cultures to create a collection of perfectly blended wines.
Briganti was the goddess of the largest Celtic tribe in the north of England - the Brigantii. They constantly challenged Roman rule, and armed conflict frequently erupted when the confines of Pax Romana became unbearable. This defiance of convention echoes through the ages and the name "brigand" still describes one who plays outside the rules.
A blend of estate-grown grapes creates aromatic freshness and perfectly creates a light bodied wine.
