This wine is our homage to the delicious and thirst-quenching wines of the Fiefs Vendéens, an obscure region south of Muscadet that Abby and I bike toured through in 2012. We fell in love with the bright bistro wines served in carafes across the region. We soon learned that most were a marriage of two of our favorite grapes, cabernet franc and pinot noir. Five years and many small trial lots later, we are ready to release our interpretation.

The Cabernet Franc contributes structure and the savory bass notes while the Pinot brings the bright red berry fruit. This wine is extremely easy drinking and versatile. Pairs great with: chicken, pork, roasted veggies, pizza. Best enjoyed lightly chilled.
