    Winemaker Notes

    Bright, lean and fresh, the Speck Grenache Rose is the perfect pool side pounder for this spring and summer. Opening up with aromatics of fresh tangerine, meyer lemon and other members of the citrus family, the palate follows suit with flavors of Italian Blood orange, under ripe strawberries and the slightest hint of savory tones. This is wine is designed for day drinking on a boat, by the pool, or the perfect wine to start the evening at your friend’s BBQ.

    Made from 100% Grenache.

    Vasco Urbano Wine Co., California
    In 2009 when Nottingham Cellars came to be, we scheduled a meeting at Casa de Vinas with grower Julio Covarrubias. We were considering producing Cabernet Sauvignon from the vineyard. After a long walk through the Cabernet Sauvignon block, and two bottles of wine, we took a walk over into the Petite Sirah. We were about 3 weeks from harvest and Julio was pushing us to try a couple tons of the Petite. We walked the vineyard, tasting fruit, talking about the Valley. While we were hesitant to not lose track of our Cabernet Sauvignon vision, we agreed that it would be a great wine for our wine club. After all, this Valley has a huge history of growing and producing some of the world’s finest Petite Sirahs. We agreed to take 2 tons, and would use the wine for the wine club, or it would go into a blend. We were absolutely taken back by the Petite Sirah. The next vintage we upped our tonnage to 10 tons. The year after we secured the majority of the vineyard, leaving only a handful of tons to a few small producers. In 2010, inspired by our friend Julio, we secured tonnage of Syrah from the famed Hayes Ranch, Grenache from Marina Ranch, and Mourvedre from Raboli Vineyard in the efforts to make a GSM for our wine club. The wines quickly sold out and grew rapidly in popularity. As we have evolved, we decided the Rhone style wines were worthy of having their own presence and we wanted to make more of the wines available to our customers. With the 2012 vintage, we are pleased to announce the launch of Vasco Urbano Wine Company.

    A warm sub-appellation of the greater San Francisco Bay AVA (American Viticultural Area), Livermore Valley mainly hides behind the shielding effects of the bay’s eastern hills. However, late afternoon winds cool down summer nights as daytime heat rises from the Central Valley in the east, pulling the cold, foggy, bay air inland. This cooler evening air permeates the Livermore Valley's foothills, making this an ideal environment for the development of phenolic ripeness and concentration in its wine grapes.

    The Livermore Valley is one of California's oldest wine regions and has played a crucial role in shaping California's wine industry. Spanish missionaries planted the first wine grapes in the Livermore Valley in the 1760s. Then in the mid 1800s, a man named Robert Livermore planted the area’s first commercial vineyards. Winemaker pioneer C. H. Wente arrived a few years later; today the Wente Chardonnay clone is the source of a majority of California Chardonnay. Furthermore, James Concannon and the Wetmore brothers recognized the virtues of the area’s Bordeaux-like gravel soils and dedicated themselves to making high quality wine from Bordeaux varieties. Today the area is also known for high quality Petite Sirah.

    Full-figured and charmingly floral, Viognier is one of the most important white grapes of the northern Rhône where it is used both to produce single varietal wines and as an important blending grape. Look for great New World examples from California, Oregon, Washington and cooler parts of Australia.
