So we imagined for you an iced cocktail served as a variation of an Italian beverage, combining the bitterness of Campari and the freshness of the bubbles : the Spritz "C'est si Bon"

Star product : Bison!
Curious is to say that Bison is a local meat in Perigord, but, David Soulié took the initiative and the desire to (re) introduce the animal in Miallet a few years ago now (you know it is a buffalo depicted on the walls of the caves of Lascaux ...)
And as Château le Verdoyer enjoys working with local producers, the Bison became a staple of our menu.
Bison is tender meat, low in fat, good for health because it is rich in protein, which will cook faster than beef.
It is cooked rather rosé, accompanied by green beans or potatoes.
