Angels Tears Rose

R69.00

Grand Provence is the home of Angels Tears wines, a range of heavenly wines that are as unique as the legend of the angels themselves. Angels Tears got its unusual name from a legend that began in a small town, Freinet in France in the 18th century, when grape harvest produced an outstanding vintage that was especially fragrant and ambrosial. Word spread afar, and legend has it angels stole into the village cellars by night and, upon touching the wine to their lips, wept tears of joy.The very same legend continues to this day at Grande Provence, home of Angels Tears.Here a French Huguenot family planted the first vines imported from France in 1694.The first batch of Angels Tears wines was produced in 1992 from D’Alexandrie grapes.
