2014 Betelgeuse White

  • Tasting Notes

    This wine is our endless summer in a bottle—straw gold and flaxen with refreshing clarity. Tropical fruit notes commingle with varietal characteristics of grassy herbaceousness and subtle citrus. White flowers and stone fruit follow with hints of fever grass and mint. Palate delights with a cascade of vibrant pineapple, luxurious guava, and lychee shadowed by subtle bergamot. Enjoy ice cold now through 2018.

  • Background

    Betelgeuse (pronounced "beetle juice") is the second brightest star in the constellation Orion, and our second label. The name is a wordplay on the scarab beetle that graces our primary label (seen at the bottom of our website). Betelgeuse is an occasional project, meaning we do not produce this wine each year. When it's available, we like to welcome our winery visitors with a splash to take the edge off any road weariness. Betelgeuse is an icebreaker, a mood enhancer, and an elegant addition to your dining table, picnic basket, or poolside party.
