The Gran Passione project was set up in 2013 in homage to the Venetians long standing history of being great traders and their rich wine culture. The aim was to create wines of high quality, that are affordable and representative in style to those that have been made in Veneto for centuries.
Gran Passione is made with a blend of Merlot and Corvina grape varieties which are harvested at different times. The first havest takes place when the grapes are at optimum ripeness, whilst the second takes place in October after the grapes have had extended hanging time and raisined on the vine. Following seperate fermentation of both batches, the wine is blended and aged in Slavonian oak for 3 – 4 months. Vibrant purple in colour with a rich luscious nose full of sweet ripe dark cherry, plum, vanilla and christmas spice. The palate is rich and velvety with soft tannins and lots of juicy fruit. Almost dangerously drinkable.
Grape varieties: Merlot and Corvina

2014 Chateau Saint-Pierre, 4ieme Cru Classe St.Julien
The 2014 vintage of this 'under the radar' Chateau is a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc. Chateau Saint-Pierre is the smallest classed growth in Saint Julien but has a growing reputation for producing excellent, deeply coloured reds. It is part of the Chateau Gloria stable and often eclipses it's more illustrious stablemate in blind tastings. Prices are creeping up as their reputation grows but these beautifully made wines still represent good value.

Les Charmes de Kirwan is the second wine of 3rd Growth Château Margaux and, like it's more grown up sybling, has benefitted from the massive investment program in both the winery and the vineyard in recent years. It is generally made with the younger vines on the property but receives exactly the same care and attention as the wine.
