Our Wine recommendation

The CAPREO Vintner’s Selection Chenin Blanc 2021 is the ideal white wine for summer with its accessible and fruity character with the delicious notes of tropical fruits, combined with light aromas of apples, pears and a hint of guava. Its harmonious balance and the moderate acidity make it a wonderful meal companion to sea food, poultry and cheese as well as refined salad variations.
