The base wine was produced from the same grapes as our 2018 Limited Release Verdelho, but handpicked at lower sugar levels to ensure no split berries. Most of the base wine was then filtered and bottled for limited release while a very small amount was set aside to create this truly unique sparkling wine made in the traditional Méthode Champenoise.
On the palate, this Verdelho has bright citrus and mineral notes with acidity adding structure. Pair with herb-roasted chicken and creamy rich dishes like white cheddar mac n cheese with pancetta.
A new adventure with an old friend. La Belle emphasizes all things lovely about the Muscatel varietal that we have adored, and unfortunately forgotten about over the years. This Muscatel, known by the more common name of Muscat, offers insight into a whole new world of what can be achieved when this grape is produced in a new style. More simply put - this is not your grandma’s Muscat...we mean Muscatel. With that said, we invite you on this journey of rediscovery.
It offers a wide array of deep red fruits and berries but maintains quite soft tannins and acid. A real delight on the palate you will see emerging flavors as the wine opens up.
Ancianos, meaning “elders” in Spanish, has been crafted to honor the legacy of our vineyard founders.

The 2017 Limited Release Grenache has some spicy notes but with strawberry fruit in the background. We used neutral oak to allow the fruit to present itself naturally. This wine pairs well with lamb, or lighter meats, but is versatile enough to handle some richer foods as well.
