Winemaker's Notes

Viognier is a very unique and aromatic grape originally grown in Southern France. While only a handful of vineyards in the United States produce Viognier, some of the very best vineyards are located in the coastal region of Santa Barbara. This wine shows a bouquet reminiscent of peach cheesecake, however, it is a dry wine with flavors of ripe melon, citrus and vanilla. About 1/3 of the wine was barrel fermented in new French coopered American oak. This wine is great as an aperitif and goes extremely well with fruit and cheese. It will nicely accompany shellfish and richer white sauced pasta.

Rosenblum Cellars Winery is located in the historic Todd Shipyard Building in the City of Alameda. The picturesque building constructed around 1910 sits right at the edge of San Francisco Bay.

The old plow on our labels symbolizes our down-to-earth and natural style of winemaking.
