Tonight, if the moon glows with exceptional allure, it could be you are sipping a Valley of the Moon white blend from Madrone Estate.
But, why wait until tonight? This refreshing selection is ready now.
Established in 1941 on Madrone Estate in Sonoma Valley, Valley of the Moon wines showcase a true sense of place, delivering exceptional quality and characteristics. The winemaking philosophy is focused on revealing the distinctive varietal personality of the grapes grown in the outstanding vineyards.
Crafted by winemaker wizard Kat Doescher, this selection ($17.99) is a blend of 85 percent Pinot Blanc and 15 percent Viognier that results in an appealing food friendly wine.
“There are certainly other white blends available on the market, but the combination of these two varietals achieves a light refreshing fruit quality, with a study backbone that gives it balance and structure,” she said.
In the glass, aromas of honey and peaches entice the senses and make way for ripe pineapple and fresh ginger on the palate.
Pour this with delicate fish, soft cheese and nuts.
