    Fairly nice North Carolina, Yadkin Valley Vermentino. Not too complicated with some nice notes of lemon cream, lemon drop and some not too ripe green pear. This has a short to medium finish and a decent amount of acidity. Read More

  • I'm sorry but I draw the line on California. Chardonnay at $50. Besides, ... ... weekend. A blend of Vermentino, Cortese & Arneis coming in at a crisp 12.2.
