We've got two new organic and vegan wines in the shop this week, the H-Hero Rosso and the H-Hero Bianco both from La Cantina Pizzolato. Pizzolato is the number one selling organic wine producer in Italy and they have been certified organic since 1991. They have 58 hectares of organic grapes in the northern Italian countryside around Treviso and source from a further 48 hectares of organic grapes from local growers. In addition, the wines are certified vegan by the Vegan Society of the UK.
First off, I love the labels of the the H-Hero range. These are labels that take a light hearted approach to drinking wine but not to worry, the quality of the grapes is anything but light hearted. The labels were specially hand drawn by well known artist, Francesco Cavallari. Francesco said:
“With great enthusiasm I agreed to carry out the restyling of the label. I imagined something innovative, humorous and easy to read that it had a strong appeal. Comic book characters, timeless heroes and still favorite by the public inspired me...in this small labels, I tried to include clear messages that create emotions and curiosity for those who, once saw the wine on the shelf, brought it home. A wine to watch and to taste while dining with friends and parents, with a simple memorable image that inspire strength and sympathy."
The H Hero Rosso is made from 100% organic merlot grapes and is easy drinking and fruity, perfect for the park or grilling burgers in the back garden.
100% organic chardonnay grapes are used for the H Hero Bianco. The result is a fresh and balanced white wine that you can drink by itself or with summer salads.
Both the H Hero Rosso and Bianco are now available in the wine shop for £11 each.
