Fruity & Rustic

The Grosjean family traces its roots back to the village of Fornet in the high mountain passes of the Valle d’Aosta, Italy’s smallest wine region, known as Valgrisenche where they raised cattle and made wine since 1969. Sustainable farming techniques have been in place since 1975: only organic fertilizers are applied and no pesticides or herbicides are used. Today, the winery is run by the third generation: four brothers working together and making some of the most exciting wines in this tiny and magical region.

Rouge Gorge is Grosjean’s every day table wine. It is a blend based on Petit Rouge blended with other indigenous varieties like petite arvine, fumin, cornalin, premetta and vuillermin from the different old school co-planted vineyards. Both on the nose and the palate, it shows a fresh, lively and juicy style of mountain red with crushed black cherries, pomegranate, with fine almond blossom and spice. This is a wine of immediate pleasure, absolutely delicious and easy drinking.

This is a terrific and fresh red, made to enjoy unapologetically with a varied assortment of meals and appetizers.
