In celebration of Independence Day weekend, we’re featuring one delicious American wine. The Farmers Jane project is run by friends and wine lovers Angela and Faith in southern California. This tasty white is made from grapes purchased from a Santa Ynez valley vineyard belonging to the Native American Chamush tribe. In this vineyard Grenache Blanc, Marsanne and Roussane grow together, and the grapes are harvested, pressed and fermented all together at the same time, old-school style.
Ten months of aging in large barrels adds a touch of richness, but this wine is surprisingly fresh and bright for a California white. A tropical note makes this a great BBQ wine, or try it with fresh goat cheeses! Whatever you serve this Farmers Jane white with, make sure you’re outdoors with your shoes off when you drink it. Cheers and have a safe and happy holiday weekend! Farmers Jane Field White is currently available at our South End location.
