Named for a sun-like, fruit-bearing plant that grows in the southern Andes mountains. 2016 Nguilleu Sauvignon Blanc is grown in a cold weather climate in Chile, and steel-aged for a bright, tart, and ultimately refreshing feel.

This Chardonnay is beautiful with bursting fresh citrus fruit flavors. A little herbaceousness (almost bell pepper like) underlies the palate and gives it the Chilean style. This fruit on this wine is very similar to taking a grape off the vine and tossing it into your mouth, which is the exact goal of the winery. […]

This week I had a taste for a smooth acidic Riesling. Having a good Easter meal with Ham and sweet potatoes, this lovely riesling went so well with the meal that this Fritz Zimmer did a good job complementing it.
“This wine is lively with acacia and lemon flavors. These are complemented nicely by a touch of minerality. The wine is super as an aperitif, but will pair nicely with lighter white-wine foods. This Jacquere is a wonderful and low priced alternative for people who like to drink Sauvignon Blanc wines (and even Pinot Grigio […]
This white wine comes from Gascony and is typical local blend. It is crisp and fruity with a soft texture from the ripe Colombard. There is a light dancing character to this lively, fruity wine.
Vidal Blanc grapes are grown from a hybrid of Trebbiano and Seibel varietals. This year, we covered the vines in bird netting to protect the grapes, and cooler summer temperatures let the grapes spend more time maturing on the vine. As soon as we picked the grapes, we chilled them and fermented them to ensure […]
