This collaboration between David Wilson of Napa Valley and one of our favorite South African winemakers, Chris Alheit, highlights the grape Valdiguie. Once popular in Napa Valley- and often called 'Napa Gamay', this grape varietal fell out of fashion and now has less than 300 acres planted in California. Wilson Foreigner shows us why we should still care: this wine has the charm of Beaujolais with spicy, intriguing aromatics. We serve it chilled and find it dangerously easy to drink.
