Winemaker's Notes

Solaris is the Latin term for "of the sun"-- an essential component to life on earth. The sun also played a crucial part in the growing of the grapes, making them a product of the sun.

These grapes come from award- winning vineyards in famed viticultural areas near Rutherford and Oakville.
