The Hope family has been growing grapes in Paso Robles for thirty years. Today, as Hope Family Wines, we will continue to produce delicious wines that are made in the vineyard.
Sampled this wine at a wine tasting at the Ridge Tahoe in Stateline, NV. This one divided the wine tasters, some of them thinking it odd or too sweet and the others liking it a lot. I fell in with the latter. I am far from a wine connoisseur but I've never had a wine quite like this. I found it intriguing. The wine was very smooth yet still complex both in taste and bouquet. In fact, I wasn't sure how to pair this wine, but I had the good fortune of sitting next to some independent wine makers and they suggested pork dishes. I'll have to try that.
i originally wrote my review on the 2007, but i have the 2008. this wine has a nice hint of almond, which blends well with the white fruits of the viognier. it's very smooth, easy to drink
Had this with the Christmas ham. Due to the glaze and the saltiness it seemed to take on a little bite but by it self before and after dinner it was fruity and delicious. I am going to they it again with some non fatty fish later. As a straight wine or possibly a desert wine this bottle has great potential.
Crisp and clean, medium body, Chardonnay like
Two and a half glasses
Nose of honeysuckle, light frame. Very spicy overtones and dried apricot with citrus peel flavors. Has an interesting "zing", but a bit too spicy overall on the finish for me to be really enjoyable. Generally alright. - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 12/12/09
External Reviews for Treana White Central Coast
Aromas of honeysuckle, citrus blossom, and jasmine with hints of pear, pineapple, citrus and honey overtones.
Treana White is a blend of 50% Viognier and 50% Marsanne. These two varieties, indigenous to the Rhone Valley in France, flourish in California's Central California white Rhone blends with the release of the 1996 Treana White. The majority of the fruit in this blend is from Santa Lucia Highlands, which benefits from the cooling breezes coming off of Monterey Bay. The 2010 Treana White's color is reminiscent of the golden hillsides of the California Central Coast at harvest time. 50% Marsanne and 50% Viognier. The Wine Spectator said "The rich peach, marmalade and apricot flavors are round and smooth, with good intensity and a softly refreshing acidity. Details of spice, mineral and toasted nut appear on the finish. Drink now through 2018."
Displays opulent golden-straw hue and intense aromatic qualities. Aromas of honeysuckle, pineapple, Meyer lemon and orange oil meld with notes of wet stones. The soft entry unfolds into rich flavors of blood orange, peaches, sweet cream and subtle hints of dried herbs and finely ground white pepper. The long, well-balanced finish is matched by a satisfying acidity that leaves the palate thirsty for its next sip.

Very fragrant, with rose petal, honeysuckle and mustard notes on a light frame, with spicy overtones to the dried apricot and citrus peel flavors. Drink now.
From the northernmost vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands, this Rhocirc;ne white is a fantastically interesting wine. Complex and compelling, with brilliant fruit flavors spanning the range from apricots and limes to peaches and guava. All this juicy flavor is boosted by bright and beautiful acidity.
