Mon Arc

Vins de Pays de l’Atlantique Bio

Born in Germany in 1988 from a crossing of two species, Solaris and Dornfelder, Monarch is still a little known grape variety. It was officially classified in France only in 2017. Nevertheless, Monarch is a grape variety that is both naturally resistant to the main cryptogamic diseases of the vine and also adapted to current climatic conditions, as it synthesizes little sugar. The deer on the label, symbolizing the regeneration of life with itsantlers, reveals an answer to the great climatic questions.
