California "Benvenuta", 2019

Produced by San Rucci Winery

The grapes used in crafting our Benvenuta blend were grown in California’s San Joaquin Valley, where both Muscat and Chardonnay grow very well. The resulting blend was our inaugral wine release that happens to be the same wine blend we have been making for many generation. Expect a bright, clean wine with aromas of orange blossom and citrus.

Interesting Winemaking Technique

To preserve its fresh, fruit-forward style, this wine was chilled immediately after fermentation and kept in stainless steel until bottling.
