Valle Girl Vino is not your usual winery! Mother/daughter duo Sitara and Ava started making wine in 2012 with the goal of playing by their own rules and not those established by others. With bright pink capsules and colorful labels with some serious flair, Valle Girl Vino wines stand out from the pack. I love this quote from their website:

Wine is water for the people. If you wanna talk about the science of wine we’ll talk your ear off #forscience and get our nerd on! But at the end of the day, it’s just grapes. All you have to do is get it in your mouth and decide if you like it. Everything else is details.

This wine was made using Grenache noir grapes grown in a Valle de Guadalupe vineyard was planted by Russian immigrants in the early 1900s. Because white grapes were scarce during the harvest of 2018, winemaker Sitara decided to try an old French winemaking technique and lightly pressed the red grapes, allowing very little skin contact in order to achieve a light copper color. The result is called Vin Gris since red grapes were used to make a (mostly) white wine.

Color:

Light copper

Bouquet and palate:

Mineral notes of flint, along with ripe raspberries and pears were lifted by flavors of underripe apricots and a spicy white ginger finish.

Food pairing suggestions:

Baked ziti, spicy tuna rolls, crispy baked falafels, ceviche de pescado.
