More about this wine from Picpoul de Pinet, France
The French know a thing or two about making wine. They've been doing it for centuries and sometimes they keep their vino knowledge a little too close to the vest, but we've got the low down for you on this v cool indigenous French grape. The coolest fact about this wine is that "Picpoul" literally translates to, "sting the lips," (*enter several Anchorman jokes*).

The grape got its name because the wine is high in acidity, which means it's refreshing and tart as you sip on it while hoping for a short winter. This bottle makes for a great aperitif but also goes particularly well with salty dishes, especially seafood or charcuterie. In France, it is most often served with oysters - so make like the French and get shucking.
