About this wine

Viv, a French root word which means “to live / to be alive” also happens to be shorthand for our winemaker’s name, who, in her own words has this to say about the project: “Having the courage to follow my truth, and moving forward as myself means that I’ll be around for a long time to come. To be alive, indeed. And that I’ll be around for a long time to come means that there’s more time to do good, meaningful things. $5 from the sale of every bottle of this VIV label wine will be donated to the Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund - a cause both incredibly personal and incredibly important to me - in an effort to do just that.” -Vivianne Kennedy, Winemaker La Lumière  (The Light), is a blend of 50% Dry Riesling and 50% Gewurztraminer.  Unfiltered, unfined, and as natural a representation as we could put forth of the marriage of these two varietals. Jasmine flower and a grapefruit citrus- zest balance against honeydew and a soft minerality.  Pairs well with richer to spicier foods, and of course, the ones you love!
