Viv, a French root word which means “to live / to be alive” also happens to be shorthand for our founder and head winemaker’s name. In her own words, she has this to say about the project:

“Having the courage to follow my truth and be 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 means there’s more time to do good, meaningful things. $3 from the sale of every bottle of this wine will be donated to the Trans Lifeline, a grassroots hotline and microgrants 501(c)(3) non-profit organization offering direct emotional and financial support to trans people in crisis – for the trans community, by the trans community. – a cause both incredibly personal and incredibly important to me - in an effort to provide support to other queer and trans folks.”

-Vivianne Stardust Kennedy, Winemaker

Our 2023 ‘Almost Red’ is a field blend co-ferment of 50% Marsanne, 40% Syrah & 10% Counoise. Named for its blend of equal parts red & white wine grapes, it surprises & delights with aromas akin to red wines but flavors in glass more closely resembling a white wine. Cranberry, brioche, apricot, fresh roses, cinnamon & nutmeg greet the nose while lemon hard candy, lilacs, melon rind, cherry blossom, lychee & a hint of limestone await in glass. Pairs well with quality time with the ones you love!

The incredible label art for this wine was once again crafted by our dear friend Rhett Bennick, whose work you can check out at https://www.rhett-illustrates.com/ and https://www.instagram.com/rhett_illustrates.

Cheers, from our table to yours!
