Friday 9th August - 6-8 pm Wine Launch and Exhibition
Le Peintre de Pézenas
We are excited to announce a new collaboration with Nicholas Poullis. Nicholas is a well known local artist who produces beautiful watercolour paintings of the local towns and surrounding landscape including Saint Hilaire !
Together with Nicholas we have created a new wine blend (our first for 3 years) which is a lightly oaked Chardonnay with a slight touch of Sauvignon Blanc. This crisp and fruity combination is really versatile and works really well both as an aperitif and with a wide range of lighter dishes.
The wine is called "Le Peintre de Pézenas" (the painter of Pézenas) and bases its label on one of Nicholas' paintings of the famous staircase in the Lacoste Mansion in Pézenas.
To launch the new wine we will be holding a free special exhibition of Nicholas' work on Friday 9th August from 6-8pm. Nicholas will be on hand to talk about his work and we will of course be serving his wine.
Domaine Saint Hilaire
Nicholas Poullis also known as Le Peintre de Pézenas (the Painter of Pézenas) paints watercolours directly from life with a distinct and personal style.

He holds regular exhibitions and shows a changing selection of his watercolours and drawings at his gallery in Pezenas.
He has illustrated a number of books including the award winning The Voyage of the Arctic Tern, published by Walker Books, and co-authored Contemporary Watercolors, published Walter Foster.
