LaVieille Ferme Rose, Blanc and Rouge are some popular wines at the Co-op. They’re solid drinks at a very good price. Lisa Parks from Galaxy Wine Co. will be at the store with samples on Saturday May 14 at 2:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m. It’s all part of the fun for the last day of owner appreciation week.
Here is some information that Lisa provided on the wines:
Jean Pierre Perrin established La Vieille Ferme
over 35 years ago, when he chose to produce an inexpensive, straightforward Rhône wine to sell by direct mail to French wine lovers. He used the same grape varieties in similar proportions to those planted at the family’s Château de Beaucastel, in a similar vinification process. The result was an immediate success in France, a wine of character and style in keeping with its Beaucastel heritage.Initially, Jean Pierre made only Côtes du Rhône, but steeply rising grape prices in 1976 caused him to switch to Côtes du Ventoux and eventually to produce a white wine from the mountainous Côtes du Luberon. La Vieille Ferme was introduced to the United States in 1970. The response was an immediate, overwhelming acceptance and an outpouring of critical acclaim from eminently knowledgeable critics who recognized La Vieille Ferme for its consistently fine quality and value.
