K&L Notes

Lucy is the little sister to Lucia. The Rosť is made by allowing the grape juice to sit on the Pinot Noir skins for a limited time. After picking up enough color, the juice is drained from the grape skins into barrels, where it ferments. The short skin contact results in a wine lighter in color and lighter on the palate. A perfect summer wine, Lucy's essence of Pinot Noir and fresh acidity allow for pairings with a variety of dishes. One dollar of every bottle of Lucy sold is donated to breast cancer research. Lucy Rosť is also donated to breast cancer research fundraisers throughout the country.

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
