Tony Kooyumjian tells Cat Neville how the Augusta region has a leg up on Napa or Sonoma when it comes to wine history and uniqueness as they shared Montelle's Chambourcin at the Feast Magazine virtual wine tasting.

Montelle’s Chambourcin is a full-bodied, well-structured pour with hints of vanilla on the lingering finish. It has deep notes of blackberries, black cherry, cassis and licorice. It has been aged eight to nine months in American Oak barrels before making its way into a bottle. This Chambourcin pairs well with red meats, rich cheeses, stews and roasted veggies – perfect for holiday festivities.
