Red Magon | Les Vignerons de Carthage

This wine is produced in the Mornag A.O.C. area located in the north-eastern part of the country, which is largely open to the sea and which benefits from the Mediterranean climate. This region, in which wine production dates back to the splendour of Carthage in the eighth century BC, is well-known for its sunny hillsides and its microclimate which is cold and wet during the winter and warm and dry during the summer. The name of this wine has been selected as a tribute to the Carthaginian Magon, author of a treatise on agronomy, winegrowing and winemaking, certain of whose ideas are still being used today.
