Darms Lane Fortune 1621 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2020
On November 9, 1621, the ship Fortune entered Plymouth Harbor bringing the second wave of settlers, just a year after the Mayflower. Edouard Bompasse was one of 35 passengers to disembark.
The Bump Family are direct descendants of Edward Bompasse. With this project, our family tries to celebrate the adventurous spirit that the other original settlers embodied. Also, we have noticed that when we share the story of Fortune 1621, it inspires others to fondly remember the histories of their families. Fittingly, this social camaraderie is complemented very well by a nice bottle of wine!
