More about this wine from France
“Le Cochon d’Or” translates from French to mean “the golden pig”. While an actual golden pig would be enticing, the namesakes of this wine are famous for their highly trained noses and ability to seek out the far more enticing culinary treasure of truffles. Snuffling through autumnal leaves, these humble hogs make the difference between unearthing worthless fungus and priceless black truffles. Le Cochon d’Or Rogue red blend wine doesn’t require the same adept nose to appreciate. A 50/50 blend of Grenache and Carignan, this wine exhibits the best attributes of each wine.
How to drink it

Pro Tip:

We recommend pairing with roasted poultry and heavily spiced dishes (think cinnamon, five spice, cumin, thyme and so on...).
