Red Blend

Certified Sustainable & Vegan

Axel wines have always been farmed sustainably. Our early motivation in using these green practices was easy: Sustainable grapes yield the cleanest and more pure varietals.

Notes from the Winemaker

Our Red Blend begins with Carignan for an intense base, body, and color. For added structure, we have added Cabernet Franc to enhance the mid-palate, finishing off with a bit Syrah for a persistent silky-soft finish.

The majority of the blend is grown in the Maule Valley, a sub-humid Mediterranean region, that shows well-marked seasons, a high amount of sunlight, and has an annual rainfall of 25 inches.
