  • What we love

    The 2019 “Doris” White Table Wine, a blend of Vernaccia and Pinot Grigio, is wonderfully refreshing, with some viscosity and richness to it that makes it standout from a standard house white. Aromatics of pine needles, lemon zest and cardamom combine with flavors of citrus, warm spices, and just a touch of mint.

$24.00

About this Wine

The Vernaccia used in this blend comes from a very small vineyard in Carneros known as Santo Giordano. Native to Tuscany, it is often the base or sole varietal for the dry, aromatic white wines from and around the Chianti region. The Pinot Grigio comes from Morning Sun Ranch on Sonoma Mountain. Gail Wines chose to blend in Pinot Grigio to provide acidity and its signature high toned aromatics. Enjoy!
