Winemaker's Notes:

A blend of 29% Muscat Canelli, 25% Viognier, 18% Sauvignon Blanc, 18% Malvasia Bianca, 6% Vermentino and 4% Muscat de Gaillo.

Big House wines are a rebellious mix of non-traditional grape varieties destined to give the imbiber a new experience. The gang in the big house is extremely happy with their tippo del vino this year. The `07 presents itself like a true Bomba de Fruita, showing a strong floral nose that's balanced with honeysuckle, white peaches and even lychee. The palate opens up to summer cantaloupe, peach, apricot and tropical fruits, ending with a nice pleasant finish.

It's quite possibly the perfect accompaniment to summer duties in the yard, fresh fish, spicy fair, or even Sunday morning fruit salads.

About Big House:

The Big House wines were born of the notion that the California climate is quite hospitable to the rollicking, sun loving grapes of Mediterranean France, Italy and Spain. Big House has found that by blending, rather than relying upon a single variety, they can create far more complex, rich wines that elegantly match a very wide variety of cuisine, from pizza, to BBQ ribs to roast chicken.
