About twenty years ago we had a hard time even spelling Vermentino and today it is emerging as one of the more popular Italian white grapes. It is even catching on here in California, thanks in part to our efforts, because it seems to us the perfect white grape.
It possess the utility of many dry and non-barrel aged whites but perhaps with greater versatility and certainly more charm – not too thin, not too tart, not too herbal - in other words it lacks an Achilles’ heel - supple and accessible, without any challenges.
Our 2018 botting showcases two decades of growing this variety in Lodi, across multiple sites spanning four different sub AVAs. Whether you are eating Mediterranean, milder Southeast Asian, vegetarian, seafood or good old American Farm-to-Table - Vermentino is a great choice!
