Our Vin de Pays…February 17, 2010
The donkey’s a little distracting in this You Tube video but I wanted to share it with you, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dbqtMleb0T4. We found this last night surfing for our wine on the web. The animator is reviewing our Vin de Pays, a simple wine which has become one of our most popular. The 2007 cuvee was in the top 100 out 1325 entries in the London Wine Fair. The 2009 recently placed 9th in the top 50 during the Montpellier Wine Fair and received a Coup de Coeur, literally translated, a beat of the heart. But thee awards are not what make this wine so popular. Simply, it’s a great wine with a cheap price.
After a rough 2008 for most wine makers in the Rhone Valley, I have to brag about all our accolades for our 2009 vintage. We recently received the great news that our Cotes du Rhone received 4 gold medals in the Orange contest. The Cotes du Rhone Villages, our first ever, received 2 silver medals in the same contest. Yeah!
