Piquette in a basic definition is a process of taking the skins and fruit left over from pressing, adding water to it, and letting ferment again. Similar to beer. Wild Arc are the first in the US tointroduce piquette a very common European process that is not able to easily be exported. Light, low alcohol, a little sour, totally quenchable.
