A truly unique white wine. Traditionally grown throughout much of southern Spain, this variety thrives on heat and dryness. We are one of the few producers of this wine outside of Spain. Grown in Santa Barbara County. Winemaker: J.P. Pawloski of River Run Vintners.
We searched for a long time to find a quality white wine grape that would flourish in the
hot climate, dry-farm management, and head-trainedstyle of our organically grown vineyard.
This unique Pedro Ximénez varietal grows under similar conditions in southern Andalusia,
Spain and has exceeded our expectations. With the 5th year of drought, our yield was very low. We found Riesling grapes from Wirz Vineyard in Cienega Valley grown in the same dry
farmed, head-trained style as ours. Our winemaker, JP Pawloski artfully blended these
sister varietals into a dry wine that will delight you with the taste of citrus and a finish of ripe
pears. Enjoy this unique blend with tapas or grilled fish on a warm evening under the stars.
Released June 2017. Only 40 cases produced.
