The use of a famed French cavalry sabre, to open bottle after bottle of Pierre Jourdan Cap Classique, adds the perfect amount of dramatic flair to this exceptional adventure.
In the heart of the Haute Cabrière vineyards lies an unassuming sundial. This sundial is uniquely marked by an inscription on its pillar. It reads “Sun, Soil, Vine, Man” and these four words form the crux of the Haute Cabrière philosophy.
The core belief that wine is grown not made makes the farm’s ethos incredibly real and intrinsically human.
This is seductive conviction and it’s intertwined with the farm’s ultimate philosophy that wine is bigger than one, it’s the combination of four: Sun, Soil, Vine, Man.
