The Region: Yolo County, California
YOLO is commonly known as an acronym for 'You Only Live Once', however, the origin of the name Yolo County is believed to come from Native American descent. This county is situated at the northernmost region within the Central Valley in California. Because of the deep and fertile soils found here, Yolo County is largely known for its agriculture, mainly its tomato production. The marine effects from the nearby Sacramento River provide cooler temperatures and the fog that rolls in and out of the vineyards daily, combined with the coastal winds, make for ideal grape growing conditions. The climate contributes to the concentration of aromatic compounds found in the wines produced in this region.
The Wine: Yolo White
Fruit-forward and slightly off-dry, the palate on this wine is inviting and well-balanced. The Chardonnay contributes vibrant green apple and melon flavours. The floral aromatics come from the Muscat, and the Chenin Blanc completes the wine with citrus flavours and high acidity. Pair with mild curry dishes, baked ham, Brie and Camembert. This California beauty is sure to be an exquisite addition to anyone's wine collection for sharing with friends and family.
