Vermentino grows all over the Mediterranean coast where it goes by a few different names- Rolle in Provence, Malvosie de Corse in Corsica, Pigato in Liguria, Favorita in Piemonte and most notably Vermentino in Sardinia, where it is awarded the islands only DOCG, Vermentino di Gallura.

Prized for making aromatic white wines which retain a lot of natural acidity in rather warm growing conditions, Vermentino has found a new home in the Cosumnes River Valley, just south of Sacramento. On the palate you should experience a crisp, complex wine with notes of ripe pear, citrus blossoms and a tell-tale (and delicious) green almond bitterness.
