Wine of the Week -- Font du Vent Côtes-du-Rhône Rouge

Today's featured wine is the perfect mid-winter red. The Font du Vent Côtes-du-Rhône Rouge is 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah and is a full, easy-drinking bottling that's also food-friendly. It has a delightful bouquet of red fruits and licorice tempered by just the right amount of spice. When the winter doldrums settle in and it's just too much to go outside, cuddle up with this plush red that will warm you right up!

Originally founded in 1950, Bertrand and Guillaume Gonnet continue their family’s legacy by producing wine in their style, but are also making their own mark. Their commitment to understanding the terroir in terms of how it affects the ripening process, and introducing improvements to the production process have both enhanced the elegance and style of the wine. An important initiative for the winery was the natural shift to organic agriculture. Font du Vent had been operating organically for years, so it was a logical next step to apply for organic certification. Their vines have been in their family for over four generations, and organic farming signifies their commitment to passing on healthy vineyards to the next generation.
