Notes from Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant:

"Catherine and Pierre Breton are the real life bon vivants vignerons of lore. They are passionate about what they do, they enjoy sharing it with others, and they entertain with a generosity and charm. That they make great wine with such integrity makes our appreciation of them complete. The Bretons farm eleven hectares of vines just east of Bourgueil in the village of Restigné. They produce Chinon and Bourgueil, as well as a bit of Vouvray, creating honest wines for both early consumption and longer aging.

Trinch” is named after a German expression meaning “cheers” championed by the poet and philosopher Rabelais.  Trinch is a Cabernet Franc from younger vines vinified in stainless steel with a cold maceration.  It is made for early consumption and typically has very accessible fruit, soft tannins and low alcohol.  Bottled in the Spring after harvest."
