Product Description

Sexier than Pinot Grigio, Naughtier than a Chardonnay.  Do you want to try something you have never tasted before?  Civello - on beyond Chardonnay. Change into something different. We strive to make white wines that are refreshing, exciting, irresistible and delicious. When is the last time you heard someone say that about Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc? We start with the Pinot Gris grape, known in Italy as Pinot Grigio, which we get from Monterey. Depending on the year, we add the Spanish grape Verdhelo which we get from the warmer Clarksburg area. We add a splash of the German/Alsatian grape Gew├╝rztraminer which we get from California’s coolest counties. Occasionally we add a little Dijon clone Chardonnay from Carneros. Sometimes we even add a little Muscato Fruliano or Albarino.

Civello White Blend 2010 Tasting Notes

"We began with a traditional Alsatian mix of Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer. The two grapes together become a mysterious mix of taste and aromas best described as baked nuts and spice. Feeling the blend was too traditional, Winemaker Ricardo d. wanted to enrich the Pinot Gris with tropical notes and flavors. Chosen were the white peach and tropical flavors found in the Verdelho grape when grown in California.  The taste is crisp, but full. The wine is dry." - Winery Notes
