Former Sommelier of the Year Hervé Bizeul turned his hand to winemaking in the late 1990s in a then-unfashionable wine growing area. Since then, others including Bordelais châteaux grandees, international investors and Rhône legend Michel Chapoutier have all invested in the Agly Valley with impressive results. Hervé’s wines are now sought after across the globe. His ‘Les Sorcières’ white and red represent great value and an introduction to his personality and approachable house style. This aromatic blend of Grenache Blanc, Vermentino (aka Rolle), Roussanne and Macabeu is a wonderfully refreshing, citrusy and camomile-scented mineral white with sufficient weight to partner sardines, melon salads or lemon chicken.
