Le Moulin Rouge Pisoni Vineyard, Monterey County Translated from the French: red mill and also the name of the famous French cabaret

Le Moulin Rouge
Estate Pinot Noir

This powerful, complex and rich Pinot is made from grapes grown by the Pisoni family, exceptional growers in the Santa Lucia Highlands of Monterey County. It is a wine we have been very pleased to offer for over 20 years. Le Moulin Rouge is the only wine in our portfolio made from grapes that are not estate grown.

Le Moulin Rouge was named in honor of the infamous Parisian nightclub, as well as a certain toast that has been given by Sir Peter, who has been known to good-humoredly roast himself and his friends as questionable characters of dubious repute.
