Sample Wine List
THE GALLERY IS PROUDLY THE FIRST & ONLY STOCKIST OF SAV SPARKLING BIRCH WINE IN IRELAND.
New batch due in 2019. PRE ORDER ONLY.
Back in 1785, while the French were slowly turning their bottles, Swedish botanists found a way to make a sparkling wine from pure birch sap. Sav is produced according to the "méthode traditionelle", is organically harvested and completely natural.
Lake Storsjön in Sweden is mineral rich and the Birch forests drink its crystal waters to transform this other-worldy juice. With a nod to a vintage champagne, this is perhaps one of the most refreshing and honest drinks you will ever taste!
‘Jean-François Ganevat is a master of his craft, one of the true magicians of the eclectic. To say that his grapes are spun into gold would not be far from the truth; they are entirely otherworldly.’ Kermit Lynch
Nestled in between Burgundy and Switzerland, the cool climate mountain of Jura is home to forty different grape varietals. Winemaking styles vary enormously, and many of the wines in the Jura go through a traditional, intentional oxidation.
Like many of the world’s best vignerons, Jean-Francois Ganevat has re- discovered techniques and grape varieties from the past to make cutting edge wines. After training in Beaune and spending 9 years as the Maitre de Chai at Jean-Marc Morey in Chassagne-Montrachet, he returned to make wines at his family domain in 1998, the 14th generation of his family to do so since 1650. His objective was to make wines with the same philosophy as the best wines of Burgundy, aiming to lend greater lightness and elegance to his wines, using ouillage to top off barrels.
