    Winemaker Notes

    With delicious confit notes of bergamot orange, quinine and dried apricot, it boasts a limpid, suave and smooth mouth. The perfect softness and fine length in the mouth imbue it with incredible persistence.

    The vineyard is located in the Pantelleria Island (Sicilia), between Sicilia and Tunisia.

    The soil of the Moscato di Pantelleria, from the Carole Bouquet Vineyard, is composed of 70% volcanic stone and 30% clay and limestone. The Moscato di Pantelleria is made with a variety called "Muscat of Alexandria", locally named "Zibbido" (meaning "grape to dry"). Aromas are very strong and these grapes show a great resistance to climatic elements. Vines grow in many different levels in the vineyard called "en terrasses", and are surrounded by little walls of stone which protect the vineyard feom the wind,because in Pantelleria, the wind blows about 321 days a year. Grapes are hand-picked, then once selected, are laid on the ground dry in the sun. This is called "passerillage". After two or three weeks of the drying process, grapes are added to a fermentating wine in order to increase the richness of the wine. After the fermentations and once allowed to naturally clear, the wine is bottled.

    One of the world's most highly regarded regions for wine production and tourism, the Napa Valley is the AVA that brought worldwide recognition to California winemaking. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard lands were scooped up and vines were planted throughout the county. A number of wineries emerged, from large conglomerates to small boutiques to cult classics. Cabernet Sauvignon is definitely the grape of choice here, with many winemakers also focusing on Bordeaux blends. Whites are usually Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

    Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that lend even more character specifics to the wines. Furthest south is Carneros, followed by Yountville, Oakville & Rutherford. Above those two are St.-Helena and the valley's newest AVA, Calistoga. These areas are situated on the valley floor and are known for creating rich, smooth Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay. There are a few mountain regions as well, nestled on the slopes overlooking the valley AVAs. Those include Howell Mountain, Stags Leap District, and Mt. Veeder. Wines from the mountain regions are often more structured and firm, benefiting from more time in the bottle to evolve and soften.
