The Hoffmann & Rathbone approach to winemaking is modern but minimalistic. They create their base wines by carefully sourcing and hand-picking only the ripest grapes, which are gently pressed to separate the juice from the skins. The magic in the transformation from grape to sparkling wine is attention to detail and absolute care. The final Cuvée is lovingly and carefully selected from the most promising wines. Ulrich Hoffmann has been a winemaker and consultant for 15 years, working at the Rolf-Willy estate in BadenWürttemberg, Chateaux de Fieuzal and Haut-Gardére in Bordeaux, Artadi in Navarra, and Cain Vineyards in Napa Valley. These are pure and distinctive wines with real finesse, delicious to drink now but with definite aging potential.
