Jardesca California Aperitiva 750ml

SKU #1152742

Jardesca is a new project from former San Francisco bartender Duggan McDonnell: a wine-based aperitif made from California grapes and locally-grown herbs. We love what white wine aperitifs can do in a cocktail and Duggan is a wizard with his mixing. He brought his bag of tricks to our tasting bar recently, beginning with fresh basil and lime. He muddled those two ingredients with some simple syrup, added some ice cubes, poured in about three ounces of Jardesca, and topped it off with some soda water. Poof! Cocktail heaven. On it's own, the Jardesca is fresh and floral with plenty of snappy acidity. It can function in place of a normal dry vermouth as well, but I love it over ice with a twist.

Looking for your summer aperitif wine that's local, light, aromatic, complex, and wont give you a hangover?! This small production aperitif is made in Northern California's Sonoma County and is loaded with natural aromatic botanicals like basil, Kaffir lime, fresh herbs, mint, flowers, and citrus. This is a drier style aperitif wine whose cocktail combinations are endless! Splash of soda, lime, fruit, or lavender, and you've got yourself one complex concoction! I've been enjoying it on my deck during sunset for an immediate summer refreshment! You must try! You will be hooked.

I tried this when I was in Northern California over the holidays. It is truly unique and goes down well neat, on the rocks or with some club soda and a twist. It is super refreshing, I can't wait to crack a bottle.

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.
