Wine of the Week - Font du Vent Côtes-du-Rhône Rosé "Les Promesses"

From our newest Rhône producer, Font du Vent, comes this summer-ready rosé - just in time for hot weather. A fresh blend of Cinsault and Grenache from organically-grown vines, the Côtes-du-Rhône Rosé "Les Promesses" shows bright red fruit and and ripe melon. Rosé is the staple drink in the South of France in summer, so grab a bottle of this fantastic rosé, some tapenade, olives, anchovies, ripe rockmelon and some fresh goat cheese and you could be in the Gonnets' garden in the middle of summer.

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.
