The hills are alive with the vibes of Sunhoney! Like blooming flowers, with hints of honeysuckle and jasmine, this wine is super fresh and totally captures the essence of springtime.
We collected Grüner Veltliner, Riesling and Viognier from 4 organic Santa Barbara County vineyards and fermented it on skins for 2 weeks. Once dry we pressed and barreled to neutral Hungarian oak. The result is a spectacular natural wine.
Sunhoney is imbued with amber honey colored cloudiness, scents of butterscotch, white tea and lemon verbena with flavors of white peach, ginger, juniper berries, and orange pez. Light tannins finish this wine like pollen dust.
It will pair nicely with summer grilled veggies, jerk chicken, fish tacos and falafel.
Through our partnership with 1% for the planet a portion of the sales of Sunhoney will be donated to the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation. Check them out at xerces.org
