    Martin began making wine in earnest in 2014 post studying economics, being a DJ and working in NYC wine shops. Fortunately for us and for you, Martin realized that his ~*destiny*~ is to follow in his father’s (maybe you’ve heard of Éric Texier?) footsteps amongst the vineyards of the Northern Rhône Valley. Preyna is made with 75% Cinsault and 25% Grenache grown in deep granitic soils. Pressed and fermented separately in concrete tanks and blended prior to bottling. Light bodied and fun as heck, it’s showing notes of smoky red cherries, red plums and roses.
