These rare Verdelho grapes originating from Madeira Portugal, come from 4 acres on Terminous Island, one of the many islands located in the California Delta. As the name means (the end) it is – in fact, the last island on the western edge of the Lodi Appellation. These prized Verdelho grapes thrive on this island because of the peat-rich soil, warm summer days and cool evenings where the breezes sweep through, off the Delta waterways, originating from the majestic San Francisco Bay. Here in the United States, there are only 3 vineyards that grow these special Verdehlo grapes.
Our Verdelho wine is bursting with the vibrant flavors of: peaches, nectarines, and ripe melons along with the citrus fruits of tangerines and grapefruit. Combine that with some tropical fruit flavors and you have an exciting crisp, smooth, long finish.
