Bad boy of Saint-Emilion❗❗❗ .
In 2002, Château Valandraud earned the reputation for being the bad boy of Saint-Emilion.
Mr.Jean-Luc Thunevin, the proprietor, chose to cover 2 hectares of Valandraud and Clos Badon Thunevin vineyards with plastic sheets to prevent potential water damage from the expected rainy season before harvest.
His decision went against the policies required by the INAO charter.
As a result, the entire harvest was declassified to a table wine and the use of the Château original name was forbidden.
Helas, a 2nd wine was born under the name "L’INTERDIT DE VALANDRAUD" in English "THE FORBIDDEN WINE OF VALANDRAUD".

Stunning sunset over this old Zinfadel vineyard 🌅🍷🍇always remember to enjoy the little things in life, because one day you will look back, and realize they were the big things
Angela está no rótulo do Chardonnay, Carolyn aparece no de Riesling, Nick ilustra o blend de uvas Little Stomper e Linnette é a estrela do Pinot Noir. Um grupo de amigos produtores de vinho da fazenda The Food Farm, da Nova Zelândia, teve a ideia de ilustrar personagens que representam suas personalidades nos rótulos de seus vinhos Tongue in Groove. O resultado foram vinhos incríveis, desenhos divertidos e mais uma boa história pra contar.

2013 Kirkland Rioja Reserva
Silky smooth and great flavor! I highly recommend trying this wine from Costco. The flavors are great with a smooth body. Rioja is typically a blend, I’m not sure what this one is a blend of, but it’s yummy! Rioja Reserva is one step below the premium Rioja and must be aged for at least 3 years and at least 1 year in barrel. At $6.99 this is a bargain! #costcowine#costcofinds#redwine#rioja#riojareserva#spanishwine#spanishred
