The storied Picpoul, one of the rarest grapes in Washington, is the not-so-secret ingredient of this stunning Grenache Blanc blend. Not-so-secret because “Lip Stinger” is the literal translation of the word picpoul. “It’s kind of like this wine named itself!” says Ali. Our Picpoul was grown sur echalas and co-fermented with Rousanne, Marsanne, Clairette Blanche, Viognier; literally every Rhone White varietal at French Creek. They were grown together, picked together, fermented together, and now offer themselves to you in this age-worthy blend. Plus -- it won’t really sting your lips, just make them more kissable.
