Our Bordheauxd Red (pronounced Board Head Red) is a delicious blend of Echo Vineyard Cabernet, Reid Vineyard Merlot, and Reid Vineyard Syrah. Hood River and the Columbia Gorge are famous for the winds that gust through creating the perfect conditions for surfing and boarding. Because of that, kite boarders and windsurfers flock to the Gorge and are known as the Board Head Community. In the old days, they used to be called Boardheads because they carried their boards on their heads. While is was not a nice term at the time, the kite boarders and windsurfers soon adopted it. Bordheauxd Red is a clever play on the words Bordeaux and Board Head and gives homage to the colorful community that provides Hood River much of its spirit. 375 cases of this great blend were bottled in early July 2017. Pair Bordheauxd Red with a number of different appetizers and meals like tapas or Spinach and Artichoke Quiche – the recipe included with purchase.
