The “wolf in the mouth“ is inspired by our Vermont landscape and by a twist on an Italian phrase for good luck. Made from a field blend grown in one of our vineyards, this rosé reminds us of the lone field tree or wolf tree symbolic of the old Vermont meadow. These solitary trees give a sense of history and mystery, of stories from another time, and stories yet to be told. These beguiling old trees remind us that the story of this alpine landscape, both wild and cultivated, is still unfolding. alc. %: 12 agriculture: biodynamic
