2013 Tendu California Vermentino (1L)

SKU #1150960

San Francisco Chronicle called the inaugural vintage of this white blend from Steve Matthiasson and the folks at Revel: "California's anwer to Gruner Veltliner, but better." More recently, the Chronicle named Matthiasson Winemaker of the Year (January 5, 2014), and writer Jon Bonné had this to say about the Tendu: "Consider this Vermentino Nouveau - a newly vinified interpretation of that Italianate grape, grown in Yolo County, meant for instant enjoyment. Bright citrus accents match a wheatgrass herbal side and ripe pear. An impressive concentration of flavor for a table wine, which I suspect was very much the point."

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.
