Although red wines from Piedmont tend to get all of the attention, the bright and tasty Erbaluce di Caluso variety promises to capture the attention of high-acid white wine lovers everywhere. The grape’s roots likely date back to Roman times, and today, just a mere handful of producers are cultivating it—making this affordable, super refreshing wine all the more special.
Family owned, native yeast fermentation, and aged on the lees in neutral wood for 18 months prior to release.
We are in San Giorgio Canavese, Piedmont, between the towns of Turin and Ivrea, where we cultivate 13 hectares of vineyards. Our grapes are almost all Erbaluce, an ancient white grape variety native to the Canavese district. The rest are also native varieties: Nebbiolo, Barbera, Neretto and Freisa. What makes this area special is the use of the “pergola” vine training system, which creates large canopies in the vineyard. With this system we have to reach up to harvest the grapes. The estate was established in 1985, just a few kilometres from San Giorgio, in Aglié. Initially, it was just for fun. The intention was to become a small producer of sparkling wine. Remo, a typewriter designer for Olivetti and the son of farmers, travelled to France to learn how to make sparkling wine. In 1985, he set up the estate with just a few hectares of vineyard and vinified his first harvest: just over 2,500 bottles of Erbaluce Metodo Classico. It was released for sale in 1987. This was the debut of the Cieck estate, named after the old farmhouse in Aglié where it all began. Since then, we have moved to the locality of Castagnola, in San Giorgio Canavese.

This Sauvy B is incredibly refreshing. It has bright citrus fruit and florals, but finishes off with a touch of salty ocean sea breeze that reminds you it’s from the Western Cape.
Sustainable farming practices, minimal intervention winemaking, and only 112 cases produced.
The roots run deep with Vincent & Sophie Morey who both come from a long line of Burgundian winemakers. This classic white burgundy from the legendary husband & wife duo comes from 4 parcels in Puligny, Chassagne and Santenay.

Although not as well-known as Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio, if you tend to gravitate towards these refreshing, acid-forward wines, we can assure you that you’ll love this bottle of Arneis—think of it like the latter two’s slightly nutty, more mineral-driven cousin.
