The wren is the subject of many legends -- tales of good fortune, heroic deeds and in this case, betrayal. Long ago Irish soldiers set out to battle against marauding bands of Vikings. A plan to surprise the invaders was destroyed when the wren alerted the Vikings by beating its wings on the war shields. Others claim the wren pecked at crumbs on a soldier’s drum head thus warning the Norseman. A story of rebels and martyrs. The Irish have since forgiven the wren so it’s safe to pour this exceptional chardonnay.
