The Vineyard!

Albert Bichot
The first traces of the Bichot family dates back to 1214. They settled in Burgundy in 1350. The family's symbol (pictured on the label) has not changed since. In 1831, Bernard Bichot was the first in the family to enter the wine business.
His son, Albert Bichot (namesake), gave the family business new momentum in the late 19th century.
Albert Bichot also established the winery in the centre of Beaune in 1912. 
Albert Bichot offers wines from the entirety of Burgundy and Beaujolais with unbelievable quality. There are six Domaines within Albert Bichot - each offering estate grown grapes, and individual winemakers that provide the utmost quality. 

The Wines!!

Chablis 2015 $26.99
Fresh and elegant on the nose with lemony and mineral nuances. Lovely overall harmony with remarkable power and length. Enjoy the freshness of the Chablis as an aperitif, or pair it with seafood to appreciate the richness. 

Macon-Lugny “Les Charmes” 2015 $25.99
This vineyard is located in the Maconnais region at the heart of the Macon-Lugny appellation (Southern Burgundy). The Les Charmes vines are planted on a renowned 100-hectare limestone plateau. Notes of peach, apricot, and white blossom aromas with a touch of lemon. 

 Morgon “Les Charmes”, Beaujolais 2015 $21.99
Morgon is located within Beaujolais (South of Burgundy) and made with the Gamay grape. The gamay grape produces wines that are fresh with a delicate finish. The Morgon Les Charmes are excellent with light cheese, game meats, and heavier fish dishes. 

Pinto Noir, Secret de Famille 2015 $24.99
Our Bourgogne Pinot Noir Secret de Famille ("Family Secret") is crafted from a carefully sourced blend of grapes from prestigious terroirs of the Côte d'Or region only (around Pommard, Chambolle-Musigny, Nuits-Saint-Georges, Gevrey-Chambertin, Marsannay…). We treat these wines as “villages” wines, where yields are restricted and ageing is adapted for each wine. This charming wine features predominant fruity aromas of blackcurrant and wild red berries. Velvety and silky, this wine boasts soft, balanced structure on the palate, which ends with a delicate finish reminiscent of red fruit.

Chorey-Les-Beaune 2016 $49.99
Chorey-Les-Beaune is located in the heart of the Cote de Beaune. The wines here are predominately red and the ancient stony soil leads to excellent wines. The nose features notes of toast, red fruit and jam, with aging those move to become gamey notes of leather and spice. Fun bodied and velvety, this wine has lovely tannic structure that leads to a long, subtle finish. 



The Beers!!

Maui Brewing Lilikoi, Amarillo Hops and PassionFruit 6 pack $13.99
Tart, crisp, refreshing Saison.

Southern Tier Rum Barrel Pumking 500ml $11.99

13.4% ABV
Back in 2014 we had the good fortune of finding a cache of rum barrels which we quickly filled with Pumking making what was affectionately called “Rumking.” We were lucky to have found more barrels, and in 2018, found some of the best we’ve ever used. This batch is at least as delicious as versions past.

Imagine our inimitable Imperial Pumking Ale as the captain on the high seas, flying the Jolly Roger. The ‘King sails for ports unknown in this limited release. Rum Barrel Aged Pumking has been kept like secret treasure in the hollows of the brewery, patiently awaiting discovery. Yo ho ho!

Enjoy Rum Barrel Aged Pumking now, or keep it hidden standing upright in a dark and cool place until you can say ‘anchors aweigh!’

Alewerks Paycheck Porter 6 pack $12.99

5.6% ABV 
a Robust Porter, boldly American, and big in all the right places. We brew this beer for, and with, rough hands and hearty appetites. Look for notes of roasted coffee and toasted cocoa.
