The Gruff

Le gruff wine is a must being alcoholic fermentation. It is a seasonal drink linked to the harvest, sometimes very sparkling because of the carbon dioxide produced by fermentation. It is a transitional stage of the winemaking.

The rural exodus has expatriated many former peasants in the cities and the inns wanted to serve them the same products as those consumed at home. The delivery of grape juice at the start of fermentation began around this time. Come and taste at the good franquette this wine that was drunk at the counter.
