A gift from the winemaker. Lovely, refreshing acid driven blend, which includes vermentino, trousseau gris, green Hungarian (!), and a bit of chasselas dore.

I’m not a “natural wine” devotee necessarily, but I am a Martha devotee.

Out to The Meadow is almost always one of my favorites in her line up. Chenin driven, this wine shows the variety’s funkier side on the nose (honeysuckle, wet wool, hay, gray stones). On the palate, it balances sweet (honey, honeysuckle) and sour (incredible tart, barely ripe green apple, white nectarine); fruity, vegetal and just the right amount of bitter (at least for those of us with an bias towards Italian whites) with Vermentino’s unmistakable salty fennel/herbal/grapefruit pith on the finish. Have no idea what “green hungarian” and “chasselas doré” add to the blend, but I trust the master and her modern interpretation of what a century old California field blend would have looked and tasted like.

2020. Very fruity white blend with good acidity. Paired great with grilled swordfish and green olive tapenade that Bryan prepared.

Great wine from a great producer. Strong chenin on the nose, complex and lively floral notes on the palate. Enjoyed on the ES patio with Alanna. Paired great with crab imperial dip.
