Established Estate grown Marechal Foch grapes hand tended using organic practices by Kit and Claire Africa, owners of Sailor Vineyard. We produce wine in our traditional gravity winery solely from the grapes we grow adding only yeast. No fining, no filtering, no sulfites. Wine like it used to be and truly local. Our Truly "Estate Bottled" wine is produced solely from our own estate grown French hybrid grapes knows as Marechal Foch. Commonly called just plain "Foch" (foesh), this deep purple grape is anything but plain. We keep it simple here at Sailor Vineyard, growing the vines less densely than modern practice and tending and harvesting our vines by hand. They were selected for their natural disease resistance and great cold hardiness...not to mention they make a deliciously rich, red, all round good wine which pairs well with impunity. We like to drink it that way with whatever is being served, from mac 'n' cheese to your favourite gourmet treat and hope you enjoy it that way too. Made with care the old fashioned way, unfiltered and unfined, it has aged and gone through secondary fermentation in oak barrels in our underground cave for nine months or so and comes out as smooth as. Wine the way it used to be.
