Old Vines, or Vieilles Vignes in French has become a code word for superior wine. Working and maintaining older vines (generally 50 years+) is more challenging and the economic reward is less obvious since old vines produce less grapes. Dedicated winemakers like this because less fruit and the increased stress to produce that fruit = greater concentration.
We offer a sampler pack of reds from 3 different regions all displaying the complexity of old vines. Explore them yourself or gift to someone else.
