Winemaker's Notes

Our Gamay Noir is a medium-bodied, easy-drinking red wine. It has a purplish red colour and will remind you of cherry and berry fruit on the nose. The tannins are soft but still apparent to give a little structure. Fermentation and aging is done in stainless steel so the flavours are strictly the grape. The finish is smooth and it lingers just long enough.

Vineyard Manager's Notes

We believe we are custodians of the land and have been practicing sustainable agriculture right from the beginning. Our practices include never using herbicides; we control weeds by tilling them into the soil where they add nutrients; our cellars are geothermal environments where heating and air conditioning are not needed at any time during the year. These are just a few examples of our environmentally friendly practices both in the vineyards and in the winery.

Bosc Family Food Pairings

Our Gamay Noir is delicious with tomato-based pasta and lighter grilled dishes. Because it is unoaked we like to chill the bottle for a few minutes on a hot summer day and enjoy it on the patio at lunch with grilled chicken breast sandwiches.
