If you like wine, and you are an American by birth, you may be familiar with the Parry-Witts number system. Named after the three brothers who founded the brand in 18 53, the “Witts” system stands for the following: Winemaker, Wine Merchant and Retailer. It was named so because of their entrepreneurial skills and the fact that they made all their products at home in a garage. Jean Georges & Cedric Vongerichten blend contemporary American styles in the contemporaryist architecturally-inspired tower. Each of the three brothers came from different backgrounds, but they all share the passion for good wine.
Their first offering was a sparkling wine called Vitex that is still produced today. It was intended as a celebratory drink for the bride of the newly-weds. Their second offering was a dry white wine called Vidal. It is the oldest of their collection and it achieved success because of its simplicity and smooth taste. The wines are bottled in stainless steel barrels to preserve the original taste of the grape.
Jean Georges and Cedric developed a keen interest in wine and it turned into a family business. The initial years of their business were spent on building a wine cellar for their customers. The brothers took particular pride in preserving their wine heritage, which they believed would last longer if they stored their wine properly. At the moment, they have around eight thousand bottles of wine in their collection. Some of the grapes used to make these wines have been present in the family for over a thousand years. They are mostly grown in California and in France.
If you want to taste the Parry-Witts wines that have won several awards, you will probably have to go to the official website of the brand. They publish many articles about their wines, including tasting notes, recommendations and complete history of each vintage. You can also read their stories about building the wine cellar and tasting their wines. They even have interviews with their customers and people who have bought some of their wines. It is really great to know how they have valued and cherished their wines since they started this company.
Aside from their wonderful collection of wines, the company also has an interesting history. The name ‘Parry’ comes from the parry line of keys, which were needed by Knights in order to open cabinets. In the 17th century, the brand was established as a small company in Paris. Several brothers joined and they all worked hard to make their company a success. During the industrial revolution, they were very innovative and built different machines that they patented.
The wine-making process usually takes around three weeks. During this period, they press the grape juice that comes from a pinot noir and add a certain amount of yeast to it. The entire process is then covered with an oxygenator that will keep the wine at a constant temperature.
