Notes "Annia is a white wine blend made from grapes sourced in vineyards throughout the Napa Valley. The wines are fermented independently in French oak barrels and stainless steel tanks, where they rest until winter. The two Italian varieties in the wine build the aroma and flavor profile while the Chardonnay adds to the wine’s structure. The wine is fresh and subtle and fulfills the promise set forth years ago to bottle memorable white wines, unique amongst the whites of California." - Dan Petroski
