Inspired by Italy - Crafted in California
Today we're offering a luscious Italian red blend which was crafted and grown in California.
Giornata Winery is truly cutting edge, growing only Italian grape varieties in Paso Robles and they are doing so to great critical acclaim!
"Giornata, based in Paso Robles, is specializing in Italian varietals and also making simply stellar wines...I was absolutely enthralled by the quality of their very classically-styled Nebbiolo, Aglianico and other bottlings and look forward to following their progress with each passing vintage...Clearly the finest nebbiolo I have tasted outside of Barolo or Barbaresco! " — John Gilman, View From the Cellar
"One of my favorite wineries in Paso Robles, Brian Terrizzi's Giornata is dedicated to exploring the potential of Italian varieties in this part of California." -- William Kelley, Wine Advocate
Giornata Rosso 2016
"A Sangiovese-based blend, the 2016 Rosso offers up bright aromas of red berries, herbs and cocoa. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, supple and tangy, with an ample core of sweet fruit, racy acids and fine-grained tannins. Enjoy this deliciously drinkable red bottled under screwcap over the next 2 or 3 years. It's an amazing value." (Wine Advocate)

"Bright, focused and energetic on the nose, displaying incisive red berry and floral scents that pick up a spicy overtone with a bit of air. Juicy and light on its feet, offering tangy red currant and bitter cherry flavors that deepen and take a sweeter turn on the back half. The cherry and floral notes drive a long, sappy finish that features gentle tannins and a lingering suggestion of candied rose." (Josh Raynolds, Vinous)

"Light in the glass, this extremely quaffable twist top table wine is perfect for a wide range of foods and casual sipping, showing easy aromas of strawberry, baking spice and gravel on the nose. The palate is fresh with framboise, red plum, orange rind and white pepper, offering great complexity in a lightweight package." (Wine Enthusiast)

"Lively and easygoing, with appealing papaya and tropical fruit flavors. Drink now. 220,000 cases made." (Wine Spectator) "Aromas of pink grapefruit, tropical fruit and herb lead to broad feeling, ever so slight spritzy fruit flavors. A tart, lingering finish caps it off." (Wine Enthusiast)

Chateau Ste Michelle Pinot Gris 2017
"Our Pinot Gris style falls between the lighter Italian Pinot Grigio and the richer, rounder Pinot Gris from Alsace. The Chateau Ste. Michelle Pinot Gris offers fresh flavors of juicy pear, melon and a hint of spice. This wine is a perfect match with scallops or halibut." (Winery Notes)
Chateau Ste Michelle Chardonnay 2016
"Crafted in a fresh, soft style with bright apple and sweet citrus fruit character with subtle spice and oak nuances. We blend Chardonnay grapes from vineyards throughout Washington's Columbia Valley to make this a complex, interesting wine. The sur lie aging gives it an appealing richness." (Winery Notes)
Borne of Fire Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
"A new project from Chateau St. Michelle, Borne of Fire, is Cabernet Sauvignon with 10% Malbec sourced from a new proposed AVA, located in south central Washington by the Columbia River, between the Columbia Gorge and Horse Heaven Hills AVAs. The new wine is fruity and forward, with a nice backbone." Washington Wine Blog)
