A winery with New York roots transplanted to… Texas Hill Country?! Regan and Carey Meador originally started Southold Farm + Cellar on the North Fork of Long Island, but since relocated to Gillespie County, Texas. The location might be drastically different but the mission remains the same: make wines that reflect the place and time they hail from, with the primary focus always on farming, and a hands-off approach in the cellar. Piquette is a centuries-old traditional drink enjoyed by farmers and vineyard workers in France and Italy, now enjoying a renaissance among winemakers and drinkers alike. It’s made by adding water to grape pomace (the leftover skins, seeds, and stems) and fermenting the remaining sugars. This reuse of byproduct is fantastic from a sustainability standpoint and also results in a refreshing, fizzy beverage that is lower in alcohol - perfect for al fresco sipping, whether working in the fields and vines or relaxing in your own backyard. Out of the can, Southold’s piquette is a gorgeous lavender lemonade color that almost begs to be admired in stemware. Super crisp and refreshing, with ruby red grapefruit, a whiff of wind-whipped wildflowers, and just a touch of funk/sauvage to keep things interesting (but not weird!), all in a 16 oz can that’s perfectly portable (the label’s pretty adorable too). The ideal outdoor can; convert your beer drinking friends, or keep it all to yourself! Sustainably grown, low-intervention/natural wine, vegan.
