Winemaker Notes

Aromas of honey and peaches fill the glass with just a hint of spicy fresh ginger. Juicypeaches fill the mouth and reveal some hidden ripe pineapple as the wine travels acrossthe tongue. The wine pairs very well with hard salty cheeses and relaxing on yourfavorite patio.

Blend: 85% Pinot Blanc and 15% Viognier

Tasting Panel
Stainless steel fermented, this blend (85% Pinot Blanc and 15% Viognier) understands its natural abilities: the vibrant tropical notes of the Pinot Blanc and the creamy, floral perfume of the Viognier. Hints of key lime, lemon blossoms, and chamomile dot the palate, with secondary flavors of salted Delicious apple, ginger, and honeydew. Quite layered and special.

Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
The 2015 Valley of the Moon Pinot Blanc - Viognier is aromatic, appealing, and bright. The wine's peach skin and melon flavors are nicely accented with a hint of flowers. Its off-dry finish pairs it well with chili oil-accented Chinese chicken salad. (Tasted: August 2, 2017, San Francisco, CA)

Wine Spectator
Peach, apricot and citrus flavors are polished and smooth, with good intensity and a juicy finish where a fleshy mango note takes hold. Drink now.

Valley of the Moon Winery, Sonoma County, California
Image of winery
Valley of the Moon Winery encompasses both the rich history and the innovative spirit of California wine.

Situated in the Sonoma Valley on land first planted to grapes in 1863, Valley of the Moon Winery is housed in a beautifully restored stone and redwood winery built in 1887. Blessed with rich volcanic soils and a distinctive “banana belt” microclimate, the estate vineyard has been a revered source of grapes for well over a century. A block of “old vine” Zinfandel planted in the 1940s is complemented by more recent plantings of Barbera, Sangiovese and Petite Sirah; all farmed sustainably with natural soil amendments and natural pest controls.

Yet Valley of the Moon Winery is a thoroughly modern - even cutting-edge - producer. The state-of-the-art production facility features a full complement of temperature-controlled stainless steel fermenters, and small French and American oak barrels; ideal for Valley of the Moon’s artisan winemaking. In addition to making superb Sonoma County Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Pinot Noir, Valley of the Moon Winery is a leader among California wineries in the production of several exciting up-and-coming wines: Syrah, Sangiovese, Pinot Blanc, Rosato di Sangiovese and Cuvée de la Luna, a proprietary Bordeaux-inspired blend. Sometimes hard to find, Valley of the Moon wines are definitely worth the search.

Sonoma County

View all wine

Home to a diverse array of smaller AVAs with varied microclimates and soil types, Sonoma County has something for every wine lover. Physically twice as large as Napa Valley, the region only produces about half the amount of wine but boasts both tremendous quality and variety. With its laid-back atmosphere and down-to-earth attitude, the wineries of Sonoma are appreciated by wine tourists for their friendliness and approachability. The entire county intends to become a 100% sustainable winegrowing region by 2019.

Grape varieties are carefully selected to reflect the best attributes of their sites—Dry Creek Valley’s consistent sunshine is ideal for Zinfandel, while the warm Alexander Valley is responsible for rich, voluptuous Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are important throughout the county, most notably in the cooler AVAs of Russian River, Sonoma Coast and Carneros. Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Syrah have also found a firm footing here.

Other White Blends

With hundreds of white grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a soft and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is more fragrant and naturally high in acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
