You better you bet

Today’s Bellacana Vineyards 2016 Alexander Valley Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc joins a happy succession of some of the most popular white wines that we’ve featured in these last ten years. Bellacana’s wines are so beloved by our Operatives that we’ve sold out our past Bellacana offerings. Don’t miss this one…

Bellacana holds the distinction of being one of our most popular white wine producers. Why? Because their wines are always a Super QPR steal of a deal. What makes today’s wine even more special was that it was made by Miro Tcholakov, who is one of our best-selling winemakers of all time. This is one potent pairing!

Ooooh, what a nose on this beauty! Floral, sweet and bright, with honeysuckle, jasmine, lime flower, Meyer lemon, dried hay, subtle fennel, and a hint of white spice. Bright and juicy on the palate, with flavors of Meyer lemon, lemon curd, creamed white honey, acacia flower, honeysuckle, white spice, and a hint of cedar.

Accolades:

Gold Medal Winner - Sonoma County Harvest Fair
