Palmina is more than a winery and enoteca. It is a philosophy and it is a passion. It is a strongly held belief that wine is an extension of the plate, a component of a meal and a means to bring people together.

Palmina is more than a winery and enoteca. It is a philosophy and it is a passion. It is a strongly held belief that wine is an extension of the plate, a component of a meal and a means to bring people together. Formed by winemaker Steve Clifton in 1995, Palmina is named in honor of Steve’s great friend Paula, who taught him to love cooking, wine and the Italian lifestyle and who was a spark in Steve’s life. After Paula succumbed to breast cancer, Steve found that her given name on her Italian birth certificate was Palmina, and the winery was thus fittingly named. Read less

If you like a good Sauvignon Blanc. You will love this wine. It is my absolute favorite. Goes well when grilling in the Summer or any occasion. I purchased one bottle after reading an article on Snooth about this variety and went back the next day to order a case!

The 2007 Tocai Friulano Honea Vineyard offers notes of apple skin, lemon zest, spring flowers, and hints of herbs and spice. The wine is dry and deliciously fresh and vibrant.

A pastel yellow, spun gold color first beckons - like that first morning sunshine in a white room. A subtle bouquet of almond blossom and the first springtime perfume from a mimosa acacia tree mingle with pear and a hint of exotic sandalwood. Delicate, fresh and inviting, a first sip unveils notes of fuji apple, restrained spicy tangs of fennel and French tarragon and just ripe d'anjou pear. Beautifully balanced with élan - elegant, refined, and yet full of verve and personality, this wine finishes with lingering notes of bitter almond. Tocai Friulano is at ease both in a rustic café or frasca or as a wine at an elegant dinner in a white-table cloth restaurant. Its versatility allows it to be paired with a wide variety of foods - spicy, hearty, savory - and is the only wine that pairs with asparagus! Serve chilled, and in its youth.
