Winemaker's Notes:

As the crow flies west, this vineyard is about a mile away from our own vineyards in the Russian River Valley. In order to preserve the rich fruit characteristics of this wine, we ferment and age this wine in stainless steel.

Founded in 2002, Inspiration Vineyards and Winery produces approximately 1000 cases annually, spread among seven different wines. In 2002, while waiting for our permits, we contracted with another winery facility where we could produce our first commercial wines. In June of 2003, we announced our first release, and by fall our official winery operation began on-site, with the production of approximately 500 cases. Besides continuing our efforts in producing a quality product, our new focus has been to broaden our distribution through expansion of our commercial accounts. Our mission is to produce high quality, food friendly wines at an affordable price for the consumer; using the finest quality grapes grown in an appropriate terroir, from appellations that are known and respected. Our philosophy is simple; great wines can only be made with excellent grapes. As a winegrower, it is our job to pick our fruit at the peak of ripeness and handle it carefully during the winemaking process. The resulting efforts are wines that show off the region and vineyard where they’re grown. Our wines are also meant to be enjoyed right away, with the potential of improving with a few additional years of aging. Tasting Room Appointments must be made in advance to visit our winery. Please allow ample time when planning a visit. Read less
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

Tasting Notes:

This is our second vintage of this wonderful Rhône white wine. On the nose, you discover the essence of apricots and stone fruits; on the palate, you find good acid, balanced by citrus, apricots and nutmeg.

As the crow flies west, this vineyard is about a mile away from our own vineyards in the Russian River Valley. In order to preserve the rich fruit characteristics of this wine, we ferment and age this wine in stainless steel.

Aged in Steel.
