Notes from the Winemaker
2017 was a perfect growing year. This wine has a pale straw yellow in color and aromas of fresh, ripe fruit along with hints of cut grass. Pear and honeysuckle weave through citrus notes and end with a tropical flourish. With each sip you feel the sun peeking out behind you to warm your shoulders. This is a perfectly balanced and luscious wine with many nuanced flavors.
Pair this with spicy dishes like curry, or with a summer salad.
About The Girls In The Vineyard
Art+Farm founders, Rob & Kat McDonald have always done things their way. When Kat graduated from college and all her friends were getting jobs at McCann Erickson or Deloite, she packed a bag and moved to Australia. Upon returning to the US with her Australian husband, Rob, they set about importing Australian wine when most Americans didn’t know they produced wine in Australia. And not just any Australian wine. Old Bridge Cellars, their company, imported some of the most iconic wines from down under: D’Arenberg, Jasper Hill, Yarra Yering, Leeuwin Estate.
After selling Old Bridge Cellars in 2003, Rob and Kat planted vineyards in Australia and Napa Valley and started on their next chapter, understanding what made great wines- great – from the soil up. Not being content with just farming, Rob & Kat founded Art+Farm in 2008. Their girls in the vineyard wines saw incredible flavor at a great value for day to day drinking.
Rob was raised in the hills of Adelaide, South Australia. He was a Naval Officer, ran a pub, owned a bungee jumping company, loves to water ski and snowboard and has never been drunk under the table by anyone.
Kat, grew up in New Orleans, has a law degree she will only use if forced and can use the f-word as multiple parts of speech in a 4 word sentence. With their children, Rob & Kat call Napa Valley home.
