Golden State Whites Case
Your Golden State Whites Case includes two bottles each of
Bellonae Chenin Blanc
Mainly produced in France and South Africa, zesty, white Chenin Blanc is a rare treat to find crafted in the United States. Bellonae Chenin Blanc comes to us from California, with flavors of pear, peach, and apple. Pair this resurgent white wine with pork and apples, or a lean and flaky fish like halibut.

Bayshore Vintners Pinot Grigio
This refreshing Bayshore wine comes from one of the first California vineyards to grow Pinot Grigio. The white grapes were originally used for dessert wines, until an importer recognized their great potential and used them to launch a line of food-friendly table wines. Gorgeous aromas jump out of the glass and delicious flavors of melon, citrus, and tangerine are completed by a crisp thread of acidity.

Della Flora Vioginer
Here’s a real winner. Viognier is the product of a white wine grape originally grown in Rhône River Valley of France as early as 281 AD. Like many Muscat and Riesling wines, Viognier is characteristically aromatic. One of our favorite Central Coast wineries, Saddlehorn Cellars, produced this delicious 2013 Della Flora from fruit grown in its heritage vineyards. It features aromas and flavors of floral, peach, apricot, pear, and melon.
La Petite Tour Classic White
La Petite Tour winery has been a highlight of California’s wine scene since the 1980s. Over the years, this white blend has remained a family favorite, and was originally only made in small lots for their own table. La Petite Tour Classic White is a delicately aromatic, medium-bodied wine with flavors of ripe pear and surprisingly bright citrus notes. It’s a versatile food wine, that pairs well with fish, grilled chicken or vegetables, and we’ve found that it’s the bottle that thrills white wine fans…and converts red wine drinkers.

Crisp, refreshing Chardonnay is the first thing that comes to mind when most people think of white wine. Snickerdoodle makes a fresh Chardonnay, with flavors of green apple, nectarine and juicy melon. A subtle hint of oak adds complexity without cutting into the wine’s crispness, resulting in a delicious gem of a California Chardonnay.
