Story

The wine
Two young winegrowers came to the Vignobles du Paradis, in the heart of the Chinon AOP.
Penetrating a mysterious cellar, they discovered some intriguing bunches of grapes from a Cabernet Franc vine pruned with a chainsaw and, despite themselves, unleashed a demonic oenological force.

Seeking to escape from this demonic force, without giving in to the temptation of the Great Sulphite, the controversial universal protector, they gave birth to Evil Red, a bloodthirsty and possessed Chinon, protected only by its shield of silky tannins…

In the vineyard
Guyot Simple pruning. The vineyards are grassed in order to regulate the water supply and control the vigour of the vines.
