Grand Vin de Hauteville
Over the last decade the Grand Vin de Hauteville wines have won already 19 international medals including Gold, Silver and Bronze awarded at wine competitions held in Bordeaux, Burgundy and London.
This Malta grown range of wines includes an oak aged, full-flavoured Chardonnay, a barrel-matured Cabernet Sauvignon, a Shiraz Cabernet blend, an unoaked aromatic Viognier and a fortified Moscato. The name of the wine Grand Vin de Hauteville derives from the traditional Maltese story of Count Roger the Norman. Count Roger was acclaimed by the royal families of Europe as a forward thinking liberal whose court was regarded as the ideal model in which the ruler combined the skills of his people in the arts. Count Roger arrived on the Maltese islands in the year 1090 and according to tradition, gave part of his Hauteville family pennant to the Maltese people to use as their own national flag. This was given in return for their courage and warm hospitality, something the Maltese people are still renowned for today.
