ST RAPHAËL: a subtle combination of wines and carefully-selected aromatic plants with exotic-sounding names.
The basic ingredient of ST RAPHAËL is the mysterious 'mistella'. This is produced by mixing grape juice with alcohol to stop fermentation and preserve the natural sugars of the grapes. Cinchona, bitter orange peel, vanilla and cocoa are then steeped in alcohol for quite some time to give off their aromas. Finally the mixture is chilled, filtered and bottled.
SAINT RAPHAËL RED 14.9°

ST RAPHAËL Le quina Ambré 16°
This new premium product was inspired by the brand's golden age and is prepared with carefully-selected white wine, mistella, cinchona, aromatic plants and spices.
