Winemaker's Notes

"Vigne d'en Traginer," a six-acre vineyard planted with 50-year-old Grenache vines in the Roussillon district of southeast France, is a prized source of Banyuls, the naturally sweet, fortified red wine for which this area is renowned. Owner/winemaker Jean-Francois Deu takes a strictly organic approach, loosely combined with the principles of "biodynamics," a winemaking philosophy rooted in ancient practices of the past that takes into account the impact on nature of energy forces arising from the influences of the moon and stars.

"Vigne d'en Traginer" – one of the last vineyards in the Roussillon still farmed using a mule – lies near the slopes of the French Pyrénées, overlooking the azure blue waters of the nearby Mediterranean Sea. Here, local fishermen can still be seen plying their trade in traditional Catalonian fishing vessels, like the one depicted on the front of this bottle. Vigne d'en Traginer is part of a collection of single-vineyard wines from the Roussillon, each carefully selected by the Ey (pronounced like the letter "A") family.

This sweet red wine is a sublime match with chocolate-based desserts such as warm chocolate soufflé, bittersweet chocolate mousse and dark chocolate, espresso-dusted truffles. Outstanding with blue cheese, nuts and fresh fruit
