Winemaking Notes: Fruit is harvested by hand. Grapes macerate for 3 weeks. Fermentation occurs spontaneously with indigenous yeast. Wine is aged in tank and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Sulfur additions are kept to a minimum.
Tasting Notes: Reminiscing about memories at a distant cousin's farm, galloping on horseback through the pastures? An inanimate carousel pony ride the closest you've gotten to the country? Either way, the 'Champetre' Rouge takes you back to the wild flavors and smells of a time more rustic. Barnyard at it's best.
