Not all wine needs to be in a bottle, and not all wine needs to be expensive. What happens when we throw away preconceptions and just taste what's in the glass? French winemaker Jean Pierre Perrin established La Vieille Ferme over 50 years ago, when "he chose to produce an inexpensive, straightforward Rhône wine to sell by direct mail to French wine lovers. He used the same grape varieties in similar proportions to those planted at the family's Chateau de Beaucastel, in a similar vinification process."Made from grapes sourced in Côtes du Ventoux, this is a classic blend of Cinsault, Carignan, Syrah, and mostly Grenache. Plump, delicious, and easy drinking- this is a wine in a box that needs no apology! La Vieille Ferme Vin Rouge 2019Vin de France (Wine of France) Carignan.
