The path to excellence at Châteauneuf 

Château Fortia

"The wines have appeared in the most important French guides every year for many vintages" (Le Figaro)

"A true historical reference" (La RVF)

Château Fortia is one of the oldest wine estates in Châteauneuf-du-Pape (18th century). Pierre Pastre and Chantal Le Roy de Boiseaumarié, represent the 4th generation of owners. They are surrounded by the young and talented Sandra Rochel and Anna Olejnik who manage the wine estate today.

"Reserve" is a wine made from the two most beautiful plots of Syrah, produced in limited quantities and only during great vintages.

"Secret des Terres" 2016 is Twil's favorite, with its exceptional vintage it is already ready to drink but can also be forgotten a few years in the cellar.

"Tradition" is the historical cuvée of the château, with its young 2018 vintage it is better to offer it than to open it at Christmas.

Champagne Duntze

Wines that reflect the great terroirs of Champagne

Founded in 1913, the house has been brilliantly revived by Victor Duntze (4th generation) and today produces harmonious, authentic and extremely promising wines.

In the 19th century, many Germans came to bring their management, accounting and commercial expertise to the young Champagne houses. Names such as Taittinger, Krug, Bollinger and Deutz began to become famous. Friedrich Duntze (1856-1944) was part of this wave.

Le Sang des Seigneurs

Full-bodied, fruity, aromatic, these wines have been tasted and validated by the Twil committee

"For thirty years, through professional adventures that brought me to travel on the five continents, I have multiplied experiences and encounters around wine and vineyards.

Each wine in the range aims to bring out the best of the terroirs and southern grape varieties that we carefully blend to find the balance and emotion sought." (Christophe, producer)
