The Shenandoah Valley is a sleepy enclave in the Sierra Foothills. If you are not looking for it, you are unlikely to stumble across it. It isn’t far away, but it isn’t on the way to where you are likely going. That is fine with us. This is California’s Gold Country, but the gold today is harvested, not mined.
The warm days make this the perfect terroir for Grenache and Teraldego. Some of the world’s most expensive and celebrated wines are made from Grenache and it is easy to see why. Spicy, yet soft with notes of raspberry and white pepper linger and the trademark cinnamon are all present. The hint of pine is compliments of the Teraldego.
When these two grapes dance in your glass and across your tongue you will taste their perfect rhythm.
