Opus One is the realized dream of two men: Baron Philippe de Rothschild of Chateau Mouton Rothschild in Bordeaux and Napa Valley vintner Robert Mondavi. Together, they set out to create a single wine dedicated to the pursuit of uncompromising quality. Four decades later, Opus One continues to be one of the most iconic wines in the world.
Champagne Pol Roger created their Prestige Cuvée in homage to Sir Winston Churchill mindful of the qualities that he sought in his champagne : robustness, a full-bodied character and relative maturity. The exact blend is a closely guarded family secret but it is undeniable that the composition would meet with the approval of the man to whom it is dedicated : "My tastes are simple, I am easily satisfied with the best". Pinot Noir predominates, providing structure, breadth and robustness while Chardonnay contributes elegance, finesse and subtlety. Composed exclusively of grapes sourced from Grands Crus Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vineyards which were already under vine during Churchill's lifetime. Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill is only made in the very best vintages and is always released later than the other vintage dated Champagnes from Pol Roger, marking Churchill's appreciation for older wines.

La Gritona Reposado
100% de agave tequila distilled by Melly Cardenas at her small distillery in Valle de Guadalupe in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. Rested for 8 months in used American whiskey barrels, the tequila is then bottled in one of the most distinctive bottles on the market, hand blown from recycled Mexican Coke bottles with a most distinctive name, La Gritona or Screaming Lady. Every step of production takes place under one roof and the facility is overseen by a small staff of locals that work each process from start to finish. All of the agave remnants that are left over after production are given to local farmers to use as cattle feed.
