With the summer season officially underway, we hosted our very first ever Virtual Wine Tasting Event! Our free guided tasting featured our limited-edition Summer Wine Trio, which spotlights three of our favorite summer sippers—Bonterra Sauvignon Blanc, Rosé, and Young Red.
Led by Winemaker Jeff Cichocki and Vineyards Director Joseph Brinkley, we discovered the purity of flavor that comes from organic farming with an interactive tasting of three quintessential summer wines.
Bonterra Organic Vineyards 2019 Sauvignon Blanc
With plenty of vibrant acidity, this crisp Sauvignon Blanc delivers expressive aromas of kumquat and white peach layered over a palate of bright melon, citrus and freshly cut grass.
Bonterra Organic Vineyards 2019 Rosé
This beautifully dry rosé opens with ruby red grapefruit, red cherry and watermelon aromas, framed by a heady palate of pomegranate, peach and a hint of cotton candy.
Bonterra Organic Vineyards 2018 Young Red
Bright, mouthwatering acidity is a hallmark of this chilled red blend, with its inviting notes of ripe raspberry, crushed rose petal, pomegranate, orange zest and watermelon.
