Limes & Salty Air

There’s something magical about tasting wines made from oceanic grapes. My current wine obsession is what I call “Coastal Whites”. Wines from the coasts of Italy, Spain, France, Croatia, Greece, and Portugal. I’m attracted to that sensation of ocean air, Mediterranean fruits, shellfish, sand, and sea water that you get when you drink these wines. Our ‘Albus’ is made from 100% Alvarinho (Portuguese version of Albariño) grapes. It is the Northern most Alvarinho found in the Willamette Valley, Oregon.
