  In 1981, two wine-loving psychiatrists established a boutique winery they name Folie a Deux, a French term meaning “A passion shared by two.”  Thirty years later, our shared passion is creating world-class varietal wines from the leading appellations of Sonoma County. Made to be enjoyed upon release, our Russian River Valley Chardonnay, Sonoma County Merlot, Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, and Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel embody the perfect fusion of grape variety and growing region.  Showcasing vibrant aromas and flavors, they offer a striking balance of intensity and accessibility.  At Folie a Deux, we think it’s ok to be a little crazy about wine.  After all, we are!

This is a very easy-drinking wine, with lots of orange and pineapple flavors. Very refreshing.

A marvelous blend of three grapes varietals, Chardonnay, Muscat Alexandria and Chenin Blanc, makes this Menage a Trois White lively and satisfying. Each variety is individually harvested, gently crushed and coldfermented in small stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness and character and retain the juicy fruit aromas. This white blend brings together citrus and tropical fruit flavors with crisp acidity. Dare we say it’s refreshing? With food or without, alone or with two companions, this is one of the most exhilarating experiences imaginable.

Winemaker Notes - Three different grapes add up beautifully in our M nage Trois White. Chardonnay lends its firm, rich character, while Muscat shows up wild and exotic, and Chenin Blanc plays a soft supporting role. Together they produce one show-stopping wine.

Each geographic partner in our Ménage à Trois Chardonnay contributes a distinctive quality: fresh citrus aromas from Monterey; lush tropical fruit flavors from Santa Barbara; and fine structure from Mendocino. We'd like to say it's a Ménage made in heaven, but to be truthful, it was made in Napa Valley. (Hey, who's splitting hairs?) - Winery
