Pineau (bless you!)

Pineau d’Aunis – also known as Chenin Noir – is a little known varietal grown in the Loire Valley (King Henry Plantagenet loved it so much he brought the wine to England in 1246). It’s grown in tiny quantities by a handful of producers. Complex and subtle are good adjectives to describe the wine. This one is made in the ‘natural’ way with very low sulpher added. Open this and let breath for an hour or two. Then enjoy. As Eric Asimov has said, “put this on your to-do list.” $30 and in stock. Oh, and the winemaker Nathalie Gaubicher is a gem! #renegadewines #santabarbara #winenerd #sb #sommlife #winetasting #wineporn #seesb #trustyourpalate #montecito #sbcwine #seriousjuice #winetime #winegeeks #winewednesday #funkzone #centralcalifornia #foodiesofsb #zagat #sommelier #805
