vin pigé
Explanation:
It`s a known type of wine, probably best left untranslated. Further to my previous answer, I`ve recalled that `foulage aux pieds`is using the feet to tread the grapes. And the ref. I gave you has a description of the wine:

Vin Pigé , Grenache 100%

Vin puissant et fruité, obtenu par foulage aux pieds 2 à 4 fois par jour pendant environ 12 jours.

Pas de levurage, ni collage ou filtration

Convient avec gibier, pigeons, canards,...

specifically, by foot


Explanation:
Pige,here, is like, 'c'est a dire', but is colloquial usage. It could best be translated alone as 'understood'. And 'aux pieds' is obvious, if not appetizing.
