Your favorite chillable red for Fall.
The Texier Vin de France Rouge is a blend of 75% Cinsault and 25% Grenache. Le Preyna is the name of an old parcel planted with 75% Cinsault and 25% Grenache in granite soils. The grapes are pressed and fermented in concrete to keep things fresh and light before bottling.
