1 wine = 1 colour

Our mission at Le Petit Ballon is to help you choose your wines. We all enjoy wine but it's difficult to truly understand our tastes. So we had the idea to create the Le Petit Ballon labels, to help you choose the wines you like, not by by region or appellation, but by their taste. Much easier right? So discover your label and start enjoying wines you love!
