[la-GRAIN] or [lah-GRINE]
In 1526 there was a revolt led by local farmers against the nobles and the church in order to expand their rights and to, most importantly, be allowed to drink Lagrein. We respect a quality Lagrein rebellion. Lagrein is a clear exception to native alpine red wines typically leaning more towards lighter body and paler coloring. It is a grape that loves as much sunshine as possible and although that sounds like it is perhaps in the wrong place, Lagrein is clearly at home in the mountains and tends to get finicky when grown elsewhere. Truly, a grape variety with a fighting spirit.
