Since the mid-1980’s, we have sourced fruit from the Clarksburg appellation in the Sacramento delta. The Wilson Ranch has provided us with delicious Chenin Blanc grapes that express our Loire Valley roots. For us, Chenin Blanc is a passion – one we take seriously. Most California vintners have given up on Chenin Blanc. We believe that Chenin Blanc has a rightful place at the table. It is the perfect aperitif wine, extremely versatile and food friendly, making it one of our most well loved wines.
Our winery is widely considered the North American expert of this wonderfully expressive grape. The 2010 Chenin Blanc is summertime in the bottle with whispers of honeysuckle, pineapple, white peach and honeydew melon. On the palate, the wine expresses soft apple notes, cantaloupe, and pineapple, happily mingling with underlying chalky minerality and freshly grated lemon zest that keeps this wine fresh and crisp. Completely delicious, the 2010 Chenin Blanc is just begging to be your summertime favorite!
