Proteau Ludlow Red
It’s not wine, although it is made for the same occasions. This unique botanical aperitif is a balance of bitter, floral, & fruit.
What’s a botanical aperitif you ask? It is a drink made from plant derived ingredients like blackberry, roasted dandelion, chamomile, rose, & black pepper. These botanicals, plus more, make it the perfect pre-dinner drink that is also well-suited for meals and to end the night. A truly versatile non-alcoholic concoction.
