Tasting Notes

Dive into the vibrant world of Baco Baco and discover the rich aromas of cherry and leather, a signature of the Baco Noir grape. Its crisp, bubbly finish and deep purple hue promise a sensory feast, making every sip a discovery.

Winemaker’s Craft

As a pet-nat style Piquette, Baco Baco is a testament to our dedication to sustainable winemaking. Utilizing 100% Baco Noir skins and incorporating the unique character of our hard, saline well water, we've crafted a Piquette that stands out in our lineup for its depth and distinctiveness.

A Nod to Tradition

The age-old tradition of Piquette production dates back to ancient Rome, originally crafted by farmers using leftover grape pomace. This sustainable practice not only maximizes the use of available resources but also produces a charmingly rustic beverage. By adhering to this method, we pay homage to the past while embracing the unique characteristics of our local terroir.

Perfect Pairings

Baco Baco’s versatility makes it an excellent match for a variety of dishes:

  • Enjoy it with grilled shrimp or fish tacos topped with fresh salsa for a zesty treat.
  • Pair it with a classic Caprese salad or a colorful summer quinoa salad for a light, refreshing meal.
  • It's particularly delightful with spinach and strawberry salad, watermelon feta salad, or even gourmet burgers for a casual summer barbecue.

Serving Suggestions

To fully enjoy Baco Baco Ophelia Piquette, serve it well-chilled at an ideal temperature of 7-11°C. This ensures that its vibrant flavors and effervescence are perfectly presented.
