Name meaning several possibilities. French -- Bois meaning wood, woods, or forest and vert meaning green. Most common translations are Greenwood but literal translation can vary to greenforest or greendrink. History: wine harvesters in France would pull grapes early in the spring for bottling. A practice still done today in many wine presses. AKA Early Release or ER on a bottle of wine. An ER bottle of wine does not contain a full body flavor common of mature grapes and has a woody and juvenile grape taste. This ER wine and the producers of this wine were called Boisvert, hence green drink or greenwood. Pronounced -- (Bwa Vair', Bois' Vert, or Bo' Vay)
This wine is very boisvert. Yes the Boisvert family often produces early release wines to capture the boisvert flavor of the vine.
