2018 Casteñada White
This unique field blend is comprised of Rhône varietals, specifically Marsanne, Roussanne, Grenache Blanc and Viognier and is the perfect summer treat. This bottling serves as a tribute to the first owner of their historic Adobe tasting room- who’s first owner was Don Juan Casteñada in 1842. The 2018 vintage was a long, cool season resulting in grapes that maintained their acidity and a wine that is just as pretty on the nose as it is on the palate.

2018 Price Family Estates
The core of this wine comes from their estate vineyard Walala, a 17-acre site in the middle of 19,000 acres of redwoods in the far northeastern part of Sonoma County. Other key contributing vineyards are Gaps’ Crown, Durell and One Sky. Distinctly diverse but all share a cool climate, dictated by the Pacific Ocean winds and fog. Dubbed their “winemakers” wine, choosing the best barrels from each site, it does not disappoint!
