Gamay Noir

Yes, we actually grow these grapes on our tiny, half acre vineyard adjacent to the winery. Duxoup has made this same variety every year since we began in 1981. We are very fond of the grape, and the consistently reliable wines it has produced all these years. (Note: it used to be called “Napa Gamay” but we changed the name to avoid being confused with Another Locality.) Our Gamay Noir is bigger than a typical Gamay Beaujolais – having more the tone and body of a Zinfandel. It has plenty of fruit, without being overly jammy or hot. The perfect hamburger wine (that is how we drink it!)
