Madeleine Angevine Wine Details
Price: $15.00 per bottle

Description: This white wine grape comes from the Anjou region of the Loire Valley in northern France. We produce our Madeleine Angevine completely dry and 100% barrel fermented, so as to complement the flavors of grapefruit, tropical fruit and herbal qualities that are the characteristics of this grape. This wine will compliment the fine seafood and shellfish of our region, and also goes well with vegetarian dishes, poultry or salads. Organically grown on Lopez Island.
