Description

Details

Albarino - This white wine grape originated in the Spanish Galacian region.  The grape generally is high in acidity.  When planted outside Spain the fruit takes on significantly different properies which make it unlike the wine produced in Spain. 

The Kings River Vineyard is located in Sanger, CA - Southeast of Fresno, on the way to Squaw Valley, Tahoe and the Sierra Foothills.

The vineyard is made up of 40 acres of white ash & sandy loam soil. The vineyard has been in existence since 1954 and the family has grown everything from grapes for wine and raisins to peaches, plums, and apricots on this little piece of paradise. However, they ultimately decided to focus on what they love most - boutique style wines. The vineyard produces Cabernet Sauvignon (Clone 337), Petite Sirah, Alicante, Syrah, Barbera, Cabernet Franc, Tempranillo, Primitivo, Albario, Muscat, and Chenin Blanc. Each block is meticulously managed. They thin leaves, drop fruit to secure intense flavors, and drip irrigate as to not over-water the vines. This family definitely produces grapes of distinction.
