The Southern France love affair continues with a blend of two grape superstars. At least in our eyes. Cinsault and Mourvèdre are underrated grapes, and when blended together, at least in this fantastic example, it's clear to see. Certified organic, juicy, cherry-laced with undercurrents of well balanced acidity and some hints of funky earth that make our mouths water. This — with a bit of chill — is perfect fall weather stoop juice.

Puech Redon is a large property. In total, 380 hectares are split between 200h of cereals, 52h of vines and over 100 of woods and garrigues. Cyril's grandfather acquired this land in the aftermath of World WarII. Under his father, the property was farmed conventionally for 30 years. Cyril, seeing the potential of such a large, contained area, decided from the get-go that it had great potential for organic agriculture and prioritizing biodiversity.
