Winemaker Ken Foster Notes
The Italian varietal Vermentino is typically grown in coastal areas with a Mediterranean climate where the cool ocean breezes and maritime fog allow the large grapes/clusters to mature at a leisurely pace. These are the same conditions we have in our Las Brisas Vineyard located in the southern Sonoma, Carneros region.

The Las Brisas Vermentino is quite vigorous and ripens consistently vintage to vintage. The wine is typically high in acidity, with aromas of apple, flower, ripe melon, citrus, and intriguing mineral notes. This is a very food friendly wine, and like the cuisine of its origin, it pairs incredibly with seafood and summer vegetables.
