Crisp, refreshing white dripping with juicy stone fruits

    • Ripe summer peaches drizzled with rich wildflower honey, soft flowery aromas floating past your nose – yes... David’s refreshing white is that sweeping and romantic! And it’ll definitely make you swoon.

    • David harvested grapes from sun-soaked Clarksburg, where the fruit hangs on the vines longer than usual due to the hot, dry summers – the perfect recipe for an enchanting treat like this one.

    • This wine's a work of art on its own, but the flavors really take off with food – slice up a warm, crusty baguette, add a dollop of creamy brie and take a sip of your Viognier for a flavor explosion!

Aging advice
Ready to drink now, but also can age. Based on past wine histories, this wine 2-3 years of nice cellaring. I do think it would age well beyond that timeline as well, depending on personal preference.

Serving advice
Enjoy it lightly chilled, closer to cellar temp (50-55F).

Local food match
Grilled chicken with a slightly sweet and tangy marinade, or diver scallops with a citrus/ponzu reduction. Always have a glass with fresh Dungeness crab and sourdough bread...always.
