Vermentino's name is derived from the French court of Philip the Good of Burgundy, Madame d'Or, served as a fool in the 1400's. The belief in medieval days that buffoonery was one of few professions open to women is dispelled by this beautiful golden haired dwarf Jester. She was often described as pugnacious and outspoken conversely she possessed an exquisite voice and a devotion to music and dance. As she was openly favoured by Queen Isabella, Madame d'Or wore only the finest tailored attire, most notably a long dress of green Kendal woollen cloth.
Jester Vermentino is crisp, pure and fresh. The grapes are ripe at low sugar levels, which results in low alcohol wine giving a lightness to the palate.
