Wine & Champagne

When the day’s sport has finished, after shooting through to a late lunch or at dinner in the lodge, camp or hotel, we feel there are not many things that are better than a glass of good champagne or a mellow Italian red wine with friends - these are the wines the Italians call ‘vino da meditazione’ 1 - wines best shared with old friends.


The Sybarites were renowned for their fondness for luxury, becoming famous among the Greeks for their pursuit of pleasure, which correlatives with our beliefs in fine hunting sports and fine wines, hence our sister company Sybarite Cellars™ was formed.

A good wine should enhance the conversation, make you feel more eloquent

than you really are, and bring you closer to your interlocutor!

VinEcology 2

Vineyards shape important economic, cultural, and ecological systems in many temperate biomes. Like other agricultural systems, they can be multifunctional landscapes that not only produce grapes, but also for example serve as wildlife habitat, sequester carbon, and are places of rich traditions.


As independent wine merchants and believers in sustainable conservation, Sybarite Cellars fully supports VinEcology and look to buy wines from vineyards, and wine producers, that make organic and biodynamic wines, with natural cork closure 3, through ecologically

traditional land management practices - for more information please visit the Sybarite Cellars VinEcology page.

      1     It’s an intriguing term often seen in Italian wine notes; often used to describe sweet passito

wines or profound red wines, aged for a long time in wood and in the bottle. The direct translation is 'Meditation wine' but in Italian it means much more. It is, in part, about the quality of the wine: it often includes quiet sweet wines i.e. not the sparkling wines, and it can also include important red wines, wines with a long vinification process from vine to bottle, such as Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (at least 5 years in oak), Barolo Riserva (5 years in oak), and then more years in the bottle. The concept is more than just the wine; it also includes the manner in which you drink the wine - with an attitude of understanding its complexity and history.

      2     Vinecology is the integration of ecological and viticultural principles and practices; it

contextualizes sustainable land management within a specific agricultural sector and serves as

an entry point to biodiversity conservation in an economically and biologically important biome.
