Le Bon Cochon 2015 Estate

Le Bon Cochon 2015 Estate

Le Bon Cochon is succulent red wine raised in our vineyard at the edge of the Coast Range forest. Like any good pig, it rooted unter the fence to wallow in the flavors of our grapes. With juicy red fruit and savory spice, this wine satisfies after a hard day's work on the farm or easy Sunday picnics down by the stream.
