WHY IS THIS A UNICORN? Three of our favorite grapes play nicely together in this half-carbonic light red blend from the staunchly white wine Muscadet region.
Founded in the 1930’s, Jean-Pierre’s organically farmed estate is in the Cotes de Grandlieu sub-zone of Muscadet, near the mouth of the Loire as it joins the Atlantic. We love their super salty classic Muscadet, but this light red was a surprise hit. Peppery with tart, crunchy red fruit, soft tannins and a nice acid backbone, HeHo is the affordable, versatile red that will take you from grilled cheese to BBQ to late night jam session. Easy and delicious, especially with the slightest chill.
