2018 Valhalla
2018 Valhalla

Our first vintage of Valhalla was in 2011. Although we might be better known for our Spanish and Rhone varietals, my parents lovingly planted Sangiovese in their vineyard with the hopes of recreating some of the Super Tuscans they were so fond of. While not a constant in our line-up, the Valhalla has become an in-house favorite anytime the conditions are prime for it. That original Sangiovese inspired our team to create a wine based in Italian varieties. Recently, one of our favorites has been Teroldego. Hailing from Northern Italy, this grape shows a great deal of promise for bold and elegant wines. We are excited to release this 2018 Valhalla and hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
