    What is Piquette?

    Piquette is a crisp, clean drink that straddles the line of many things (flavored fizzy water, beer, hard seltzer, wine), while being completely unique. Generally thought of as a low-brow product, it is seeing a resurgence thanks to the growing popularity in natural wine and this makes us so happy because it is the perfect summer daytime sipper!

    Natural Wine: What It Is And Where To Find It

    So we’ve removed the Cellar and replaced it with a space that we’re excited to talk about: Lola’s Little Shop. This new space will feature wines produced by smaller family farmers using minimally-invasive winemaking techniques with an emphasis on sustainable, biodynamic, and organic wines. Why the switch?
