U.V.I.C.A. - Vignerons Ardéchois is a group of co-operative wineries created in 1967 and comprising 14 cellars located in the southern half of Ardèche. Most of the grapes harvested by its 1,500 members are transformed into wine at one of these sites. The partnership between the cellars is an important aspect to their quality-driven strategy. It allows U.V.I.C.A to efficiently respond to its customers’ needs by guaranteeing a consistent standard of quality, and reduce costs and propose competitive prices. At present, U.V.I.C.A. - Vignerons Ardéchois, has become a major wine industry operator, as it elaborates around 70% of the total production of PGI wines within the Rhône-Alps region. In addition, since 2006, Vignerons Ardéchois has been certified by the International Food Standard and the British Retail Consortium. These references, associated with the suppliers of home brand food items, are recognized in France and throughout Europe, most especially in Germany and in the United Kingdom.
What to drink with... Chicken Chasseur.
Chicken Chasseur is a warming, hearty meal and ideal for the slow cooker. Imagine walking through the front door to that wonderful aroma, knowing dinner can be on the table in five minutes. The succulence of this dish warms towards a red wine.
Any tannins in the wine will dry some of the liquid in your mouth. A persistent flavour needs a long-lasting wine too. New World or Old World – the choice is yours.
