This Wine is comprised of Pinot Noir grapes from the beautiful Rheinhessen region, Peat sourced locally in West Limerick and a mix of hard work, dedication and patience to marry the foundations of Ireland with grapes grown and cultivated by the River Rhine. 

BT Wines, represents many years of travel both independently and together of the founders Brendan & Trisha. While they both attended college in Waterford and completed their Business Degrees, Trisha went on to study Culinary Arts.

They both have a huge interest in food and wine and have visited numerous wine regions across Europe, Australia, New Zealand, US and Canada. It is their passion for wine and their love of home that inspired them to develop this truly unique wine.

The Vines are carefully selected to ensure the marriage between both the grapes and the Peat is one which is harmonious. The warmth of the Peat enhances the subtle flavour of the Pinot Noir and the result is a smooth, lingering, velvet finish making their Irish Peat Wine a truly unique experience.
