“Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.” — Warren Buffett
You don’t have to pay much to get tasty fermented grape juice. La Vieille Ferme proves that year in and year out. For just over a five-spot you can get a bottle of delicious table wine. Not pretentious, just delicious. The La Vieille Ferme Red Wine 2009 is a dark ruby with a rich blackberry nose with flavors of mixed berries and spice. Simple, basic, delicious wine. Serve this red wine slightly chilled with your favorite charcuterie, cheese and a baguette. The music match is “To Be Free” from Emiliana Torrini from the album Love in the Time of Science. La Vieille Ferme isn’t free, but it is reasonably priced.
