These are good-time wines, easy-drinking, refreshing and gulpable. They’ll remind you that wine is above all a popular drink which doesn’t have to be just an elitist pleasure. Our Illico wines are made from grapes grown around Estagel in vineyards on the alluvial soil of the Agly river valley at the foot of the schist hillsides. But it’s not the terroir at the forefront in these wines, it’s the grape varieties. Our Illico wines are great as aperitifs just as they come. With meals they go best with a minimalist cuisine, simple but delicious dishes that let a wine shine through by its own worth.
