Winemaker's Notes:

Blackberry blended with Riesling results in a crisp, sweet character that a bear would sip in the woods. Benefits Grays Harbor and Pacific County Master Gardeners.

Sutter Home Winery:
The history of Sutter Home Winery dates back to the late 1800's, when a Swiss-German immigrant named John Thomann established a small winery and distillery in the heart of California's Napa Valley.

The history of Sutter Home Winery dates back to the late 1800's, when a Swiss-German immigrant named John Thomann established a small winery and distillery in the heart of California's Napa Valley. Although much has changed for the Trincheros and Sutter Home, the motto and philosophy originated by their father more than a half-century ago remains the same: "A great product for a fair price." After resurrecting Sutter Home in 1948, the Trincheros struggled to keep the family winery afloat, imbuing it with the values of hard work, ingenuity, humility and integrity that have characterized them ever since. Each member of the family played a vital role in keeping the business running: Mother Mary Trinchero kept the books, younger children Vera and Roger helped on the bottling line, while older brother Bob assisted his dad, Mario, and uncle John in cleaning out tanks and barrels. The family's cohesion kept Sutter Home together and eventually made it the success it is today. With its creation of White Zinfandel in the early 1970s and the introduction of high-quality, affordably priced varietal wines during the 1980s and '90s, Sutter Home became a household name and the second largest, independent family-run winery in the U.S. Read less

So light and refreshing. When I want something that is not intense, nor too dry or too sweet. I like this wine. Darker than a rose'. Very fruity like a White Zinfandel but deeper.

Watari Bune is the name of the Saké rice used - a father strain of the famed Yamadanishiki. This is a variety of rice that was popular in the 1920's but was discontinued due to the physical nature of the rice plants that were susceptible to destruction during typhoons. This is the aficionados saké. It has a slight yellow hue for it hasn't been charcoal filtered and it was drawn off the rice lees multiple times. Full of mandarins, intense with a firm violet finish. Watari Bune also means "Ferry Boat".
