Tasting Panel

Nectarine and almonds buoy the aromatics of this delightful white, grown entirely on estate vineyards from hillsides more than 1,000 feet in elevation. Apricot and pear generate a nectar-like sensation, but salinity cuts through to establish a more precise palate that leans into the fruit. The Terlatos are committed to producing world-class wines from this region.

Terlato Family Vineyards  Winery Image
When Anthony Terlato and his sons Bill and John became winery owners and vintners in 1996, they started with one goal in mind: excellence. The concept was to produce wines that were consistent in quality and as important as those the Terlato family imported and marketed during the last half century. The bar was already set high, because they are associated with the best. The Terlatos invested in vineyards, and state-of-the-art equipment at each of their four wineries in California. Through friendships cultivated over the past fifty years with numerous vineyard and winery owners, they were able to assemble a top notch management team and an elite wine-producing group. This investment resulted in quantum leaps of quality at each of their properties. Now, with the pieces in place, they challenged the winemakers to produce best in class wines for each of the most important grape varieties in the most important appellations in California. This is the vision brought to their namesake label, Terlato Family Vineyards.

The source of some of Italy’s best and most distinctive white wines, Friuli-Venezia Giulia is where Italian, Germanic and Slavic cultures converge. The styles of wines produced in this region of Italy's far north-east reflect this merging of cultures. Often shortened to just “Friuli,” the area is divided into many distinct subzones, including Friuli Grave, Colli Orientali del Friuli, Collio Goriziano and Carso. The flat valley of Friuli Grave is responsible for a large proportion of the region’s wine production, particularly the approachable Pinot grigio and the popular Prosecco. The best vineyard locations are often on hillsides, as in Colli Orientali del Friuli or Collio. In general, Friuli boasts an ideal climate for viticulture, with warm sunny days and chilly nights, which allow grapes to ripen slowly and evenly.

In Colli Orientali, the specialty is crisp, flavorful white wine made from indigenous varieities like Friulano (formerly known as Tocai Friulano), Ribolla gialla and Malvasia Istriana.

Red wines, though far less common here, can be quite good, especially when made from the deeply colored, rustic Refosco variety. In Collio Goriziano, which abutts Slovenia, many of the same varieties are planted. International varieties like Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc are also common, but they tend to be Loire-like in style with herbaceous character and mellow tannins. Carso’s star grape is the red Teranno, notable for being rich in iron content and historically consumed for health purposes. It has an earthy, meaty profile and is often confused with the distinct variety Refosco.

Thriving in the NE Italian region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia near the border of Slovenia, Friulano makes a uniquely high-pitched and vibrant white with a delicate perfume. Extensive in the area by the early 1930s, today Friulano grows in all of the best zones and is usually, but not always, bottled as a single-varietal wine. Somm Secret— The Friulano grown today, while named for its present home of Friuli, is actually the Sauvignonasse grape, a minor cultivar that came from Bordeaux.
