The Fiefs Vendeens is best known for two things. In 1793, it was the center of a short, sharp rebellion when the French Revolutionary government began to conscript soldiers, and its  coastline was the center of France’s world-leading salt industry until the mid-nineteenth century. Tucked in among the wheat fields, salt marshes, and cow pastures, there are also a few vineyards, like those of the Mourat family, a winery dating back to 1974, when Jean Mourat sold his family’s three generations-old wine merchant business to start making wine. The Fiefs Vendeens is just south of Muscadet, but here it’s a little warmer and sunnier, so the Cabernet Franc, Gamay, and Pinot Noir grapes in this Rose do well here. The wine smells a bit like pink lemonade, with Maraschino cherry and a note of the slate and schist soils of the region. Dancing light on the palate, there’s flavors of fresh red cherries, watermelon, lemon and kiwi, with a dash of salt. It’s an easy choice for late summer barbecues, crunchy salads with radishes in them, and picnics at the park.
