The Vibe: Red, Organic, dry, Carignan, White Pepper, Spice, stewed fruit, nutmeg. 

Friends Would Say: He has a strong look with an art-world feel, a modern man with a touch of some timeless features. Carignan is a lesser known grape amongst some of the more widely drunk reds. However under the guidance of Vinca Minor here is a wine that sings! Opening up with a punchy astringent mouthfeel with great acidity which tapers off to reveal a mix of spices like black pepper and liquorice and then finishing with a lasting blackcurrants and stewed fruits. The body is robust and firm to begin with and then smooths out in the glass. 

The First Date: One of those dreamy dates when you go for a long windy walk kicking over leaves, your cheeks are cold and you’ve earned your roast dinner, dive into a pub and crack open a bottle of this next to the fire! Epic. 

The Banter: Jason Charles spent time after College working as a photographer in the US, Mexico, and Europe. He caught the wine bug waiting tables in New York City restaurants. After experiences working in vineyards in Saint Emilion in Bordeaux and the Sonoma Coast, Jason started the Vinca Minor label to “explore the intersection between farmer, winemaker and artist.” Jason makes his wines with as little intervention as possible. Wine made from grapes grown without synthetic pesticides, fertilisers and herbicides in the vineyard.
