About This Wine

Not all marriages are made in heaven. But the union of the Brutocao and Bliss families certainly was.

The Brutocaos’ passion for wine goes back three generations, all the way to a dinner table in Venice. The Blisses have been farming land in California’s Mendocino County since 1943. So when the two families united, it was only natural that they would grow grapes and make wine.

Today, Brutocao Cellars crafts a wide range of bottlings — white, red and even fortified. One of their most popular whites is Gewutztraminer, crafted from grapes grown in a hub of Alsace varieties: Mendocino County’s bucolic Anderson Valley. The vineyard is situated a short canoe ride down the Navarro River from the Brutocao Cellars tasting room in the tiny town of Philo.

The 2009 Brutocao Gewurztraminer is a slightly spritzy wine that’s opulently aromatic and deeply textured. Chill it down and serve it with Chinese-style orange chicken — another match made in heaven.

About Gewurztraminer

Distinctive grape bouquet. Can yield great wines, from dry to sweet. At its best in Alsace, France and well-known as popular German wine. Floral, refreshing wine, full-bodied with low acidity. Late-harvested grapes can make a stunning, complex dessert wine.
