Renaissance by Reyes 2016 Chardonnay Citrus Coffee Cake

Renaissance by Reyes 2016 Chardonnay Citrus Coffee Cake

By Beth P. Heiserman

This coming Saturday, I have a white wine tasting event. I have been putting together what scrumptious treats I will be pairing with each wine. As I was thinking about Renaissance by Reyes 2016 Chardonnay, and reading different articles about the history of Chardonnay, like most grapes for many years we assumed the history that the information available was accurate. Nowadays with DNA Fingerprinting, has allowed us to have an accurate history about many different varietals.  It is suggested now that Chardonnay is a hybrid…

Is Moscato the same as Muscat?

Is Moscato the same as Muscat?

By Beth Heiserman

Every weekend, guests come to our tasting room and request Moscato instead of Muscat. Is there a difference, Yes! First, the name Muscato is Italian for Muscat. Muscat grapes are grown all around the world. Every country refers to the grape differently. In Italy it is Muscato D’Asti, Germany has Muskateller; while France, Australia and America have Muscat. France generally only uses the Muscat grape in fortified wines but can be found in sparkling and a still dry white wine depending upon the region. Germany grows predominately two…

Viognier… the Other White Wine!

Viognier… the Other White Wine!

by Beth Heiserman

Viognier is white wine varietal from the Rhône Valley in France. Officially, it is the only white grape allowed in the region. It is also grown around the world, such as Australia, North and South America. We brought in our 2016 Viognier from Lake LA. That is approximately 50 miles north east of Santa Clarita. It is my favorite white varietal.

Viognier is a full bodied white wine that is full of aromatics like peaches, tangerines, violets and minerality. Generally, it is not aged in oak because the exposure to…
