Overview of the Wine
If you ever want to show someone what a red wine from the southern Rhône tastes like, this is the first bottle you should open. Each year, Kermit and Anthony travel to a cave cooperative outside of Avignon to sample two dozen tanks and craft an unfiltered blend that best represents that vintage in the southern Rhône.
"Terres d'Avignon" was born in 2005. The aim is to produce and market wines of the south of France effectively and efficiently across the globe. The organization boasts some 260 members, who have a total area under vine of 1730 acres. The finest wines are bottled individually and sold at a very reasonable price for the quality
