This wine is like drinking a lovely perfume - perfect for a hot day or even as a refresher on a brisk afternoon. While this isn't the most complex wine in the world, it is so crisp and refreshing that we look forward to each vintage of it. I usually prefer wines that are more restrained, but this wine has such bright tropical fruit and crisp acidity that it's just a fun wine that everyone loves. No oak, this wine is perfect for Sauv Blanc lovers looking to branch out. 100% Viognier. 393 cases produced.
This is another great viognier from Santa Barbara’s Lucas & Lewellen. A gold medal winner at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, this wine is loaded with the lovely floral notes that make Viognier such an inviting varietal. This wine is pure and refreshing with notes of pear, lemon, and apricot. Nicely balanced, with good acid and medium body, this will be your go to change-of-pace white for any time of year. 100% Viognier. 393 cases produced.
Louis Lucas, a third generation grape grower, and Superior Court Judge Royce Lewellen formed a partnership in 1996. With three diverse, high quality vineyards in Santa Barbara County they have been producing distinct wines of exceptional quality and value ever since. As the owners once said, "From the beginning, we set our sights on doing nothing that we couldn't be proud of. Today, I am pleased to say that I am proud of Lucas & Lewellen Vineyards, from the grapes, to the wines, to the staff of exceptional people who make it all happen. But, as we like to say: You ain't seen nothin' yet! The best is still to come."More from this winery
