Merlot, a vineyard torn from the valley floor and grown on our farm at an altitude of 600 meters. Who ever would have thought that this mountain valley would produce such an evocative wine. Even with our steep and poor soils, we have a finished wine with elegance and complexity. We drink it with satisfaction knowing that great reds can also be produced in the mountains.
