Welcome To Picayune Cellars! Started in 2011, Picayune Cellars is owned by Claire & Jennifer, two friends led by the same love for drinking quality wines - the same drive for searching great value in wines and the same philosophy about working "Choose a job you love and never work a day in your life!” Picayune means “a little bit” in French, and their negociant project starts with the quest for amazing small lots of wines. The process: We sit down, taste, blend and once we know this is what we want to drink then we bottle and share with you. Their sources: a talented pool of winemaker friends. Their goals: - Create exciting wines to share and drink with all!
