American Valdiguié, often found in California, is a relatively rare, light-bodied red wine that’s seen a recent resurgence in popularity. Originally mistaken for Gamay in the mid-20th century, it’s now embraced for its own unique qualities. Known for its bright, vibrant acidity and low tannins, it’s typically bursting with fresh red fruit flavours like strawberry, red cherry, and cranberry. Some wines may also exhibit floral notes and a hint of peppery spice. Its high acidity and light body make it very food-friendly, pairing well with a wide range of dishes. American Valdiguié offers a delightful, easy-drinking alternative for those seeking something a bit off the beaten path.
