In the hills of Mendocino County, California, winemaker Sam Bilbro explores the grapes of Piedmont. Northern Italian varieties grown in California and made into exceptional wines with an "honest and sustainable approach" and "minimalist winemaking techniques". Flora & Fauna white is a blend of Arneis, Muscat Canelli and Cortese. Aromatic with explosive floral notes, touches of honey and a mineral, saline streak. Some richness on the palate tempered with racy acidity. Dry, but not too dry. A beautiful example of quality small batch "natural" California winemaking. North Coast, California, 2018.
