RAM Cellars' Viv

Drink: RAM Cellars' Viv

From RAM Cellars in Portland, Oregon, Viv is named after the French root word meaning “to live, to be alive.” It also happens to be short for Vivianne, the name of the winery’s founder and winemaker who came “alive” as they came out as transgender in 2018. For every sale of the bottle, RAM Cellars donates $5 to organizations that support queer and transgender people. Viv is a petit verdot with an earthy, spicy flavor. Rich yet grounded and full of life, to be sure.
