Taking its name from the Latin term, meaning 'let flourish', Floreat is the creation of Anne-Marie Hurst, a qualified medical herbalist. She recognised the global shift towards more mindful living and consumption, and her vision was to create a delicate and delicious sparkling wine, lower in alcohol and calories than existing sparkling wines on the market.
The story began at Anne-Marie's kitchen table, where she lovingly chose a unique blend of botanicals. The vision was to pursue the use of herbs and combine them into an exciting, low alcohol, low-calorie drink that enhances any social gathering or celebration. Floreat is the first in its field.
We decided to combine a balanced approach to alcohol, the final blend was created with master sommeliers over the course of 18 months to produce a sparkling wine that is a beautifully balanced bouquet of flavour. Light, bright and golden, with gentle bubbles and a zesty, crisp nose. Floreat delivers a distinctive and modern taste.
To get the wholeness of the plant, all herbs used in the creation of Floreat are fresh, organic and biodynamic. They were carefully handpicked by our Founder and qualified Herbalist, Anne-Marie. Chosen for their properties, our herbal tinctures are made using well-known, traditional herbalist methods that have been scientifically proven.
