Region: IGP Collines Rhodaniennes
Type: Red Wine
Grape: Mornen Noir
When Pierre-Andre and Anne started to farm in the out of the way Coteaux-Du-Gier somewhere between Lyon and Clermont-Ferrand wine wasn’t a priority, instead it was grains, fruits and dairy cows, as well as a tiny production of wines. This kept going until the early 2000's when a drop in milk prices forced them to rethink a few things, and they decided to take some of their most interesting land and convert it to vineyards. What didn’t change was the commitment to be farmers first, to work the land honestly and responsibly and have the product reflect that, be it wine or milk.
Made from 100% Mornen Noir. Once cultivated in the Loire and the Rhone, this grape exists today in only limited plantings. Low alcohol and high acidity make for an easy-to pair-red wine.
