As huge wine fans ourselves, we take great pleasure and time in tasting and selecting the wine we have in our chalets. We can assure you that decisions are not taken lightly and tastings are extensive and very serious!
We do enlist the help of sommeliers and involve them in our tastings and selection process. We get some wines direct from the vineyards and some we get through our suppliers. We also now stock a unique range of Organic Wine, one of the first companies to explore the organic wine market – the wines are delicious with no compromise on great tastes.
We try our best to stick to local wines, at least country specific wines, but this can sometimes be tricky. We look for wines that are well known and tend to please most pallets but the choice will always vary in their strength, robustness and flavours.
The Organic Wines from Boyer Wines are very special and 100% organic. Only the best grapes get selected and they are picked from the Languedoc, Bordeaux and Rhone Valley regions. In all these wines there is no added sugar, no, or minimal fining, minimal use of sulphates, no adjustment for acidity, no added preservatives or flavourings and no or minimal filtration. Pure and natural wines.
We very much hope you enjoy our house selections, we certainly enjoyed selecting them!
Should you require a specific wine or a particular grape, a certain vintage then we would be happy to source a wine for you from one of our local suppliers. We can then stock this wine for you in your chosen Kaluma chalet – only at the cost price to yourself.
