Chateau Amsterdam -

The perfect summer drink

Refreshing, low in alcohol (5%), with a nice fizz, and completely circular. It’s not sparkling wine. Nor is it cider… Piquette is in a category of its own; a new product on the Dutch market. It’s your perfect aperitif or borrel-buddy, always down for spontaneous picnics, a day at the beach, or relaxing on a sunny terrace. Piquette d’Amsterdam is your new, favourite cool-down.

This is how we made our Piquette

When making wine, a residual product of the grape is left over. This product is called pomace and it is all the remaining skins, seeds and stems of the grape. Normally, pomace is thrown away, which is a shame as we, winemakers, can make the process of making wine more sustainable by making use of this pomace. This is where Piquette d’Amsterdam is born. The by-products of pressed grapes undergo a second life. In other words, a new process in which we develop a new product. To make our Piquette d’Amsterdam, we only add mineral water to the grape skins. That, – and of course enough love and patience – is needed to extract the flavours, alcohol and colour from the pomace. The bubbles come later, when we prepare the bottles.

Huh, forbidden?!

European wine regulations stipulate that you’re not allowed to upcycle the residual product of wine into something tasty. Well, you can make piquette, but you cannot sell it. Unless you are related to the winemaker. So, become part of our family to make Piquette d’Amsterdam available to everyone.
