May 12th – We’re pleased to share one of the newest releases from Hammeken Cellars, Piquitos Moscato. Light, crisp and refreshing with a touch of sweetness, Piquitos means “little kisses” in Spanish and is designed in every way to share the love. Made by the team from Hammeken Cellars in Spain, Piquitos is a frizzante Moscato made in sunny Valencia on the Mediterranean Coast. The wine bursts with mandarin peel, honeysuckle and sweet orange blossom. A well-balanced Moscato, Piquitos delivers a hint of sweetness with a lively style that works on its own or in a spritz cocktail. The “heart” on the label captures the spirit of Piquitos: it’s a wine to gift, savor and share with friends. (SRP: $11.99) Click here for more information about Piquitos, including recipes.
About Hammeken Cellars:
Hammeken Cellars is not your typical Spanish wine company. Danish Founder Nicholas Hammeken is a modernist by nature and trained as a cellar master before immersing himself in the wine trade. His technical background left him with a profound respect for quality, while years spent working in the vibrant retail market in the United Kingdom taught him to appreciate the consumer perspective and the appeal of friendly wines at every price point. Hammeken found his way to Spain in 1996. A spirit of optimism reigned after the Barcelona Olympics, and there was opportunity everywhere, especially in wine. Vines that had been left untouched for generations were newly discovered. Native Spanish grape varieties were unknown, but the pure fruit expression was irresistible. By 2001, informed by years of travel in Spain, Hammeken had unlocked a winning approach: to use indigenous fruit from the best places in Spain to create fresh, approachable wines with partners who share in his modern vision.
