The Chevalier de Saint Andre wine is Univitis’ bestseller. Sold all around the world, the wine’s success is due to its ability to please a broad range of palates. Indeed, Chevalier de Saint Andre is a wine that can be enjoyed by new wine drinkers due to its soft tannins as well as connoisseurs who will be able to pick up on its wide range of red and black berry aromas. The wine was named in tribute to St Andre the 1st apostle, famous for his crucifixion on an X cross. In the 13th century, time of the crusades, the knights (chevaliers) stole the symbolic cross to hide it in France.
