Oeil De Perdrix

The Oeil de Perdrix style of wine has invented in the middle Ages in Champagne region of France. Oeil-de-Perdrix is the prior wine of Neuchatel. It is basically a delicate rose wine manufactured by the Pinot noir grape. The Oeil de Perdrix is a Neuchatel specialty has tremendously been popular for several centuries before.Oeil de Perdrix or the "eye of the partridge" is a wine meant to be chilled and consumed by young.

A reference to its pale pink color, the Oeil-de-Perdrix will have the typical Pinot noir bouquet. Within Switzerland as in Neuchatel, the Oeil-de-Perdrix name may only be used on rose made from Pinot noir. In 1975 another rose wine was made from the Zinfandel grape at the Sutter Home Winery in California to lure the consumers. At the time of fermentation, the wine got “stuck making a relish pink wine. Thus it met with great success and respect, so referred to as the “blue haired ladies” wine.
