Shangri-La Wine

For the wine collector that (almost) has everything: A world class Cabernet from Yunnan Province with vineyards planted in the Himalayas at altitudes of 6,800-8400 feet. This is unexplored wine territory in the lands the legendary city of Shangri-La is said to have been located. Forbes has a great article on this wine being tasted blind alongside 1986 Clerc Milon, 2008 Conterno Barolo…. Vineyards are tended to by families of Tibeteans. We tasted this wine last week and were very surprised at the excellent quality. Who would have thought. $325 a bottle is a weee bit steep but this after all a little piece of wine history in the making. #renegadewines #santabarbara #winenerd #sb #sommlife #winetasting #wineporn #seesb #trustyourpalate #montecito #sbcwine #seriousjuice #winetime #winegeeks #winewednesday #funkzone #centralcalifornia #foodiesofsb #zagat #sommelier #thatwinenerd #intothebottle #somm3 #savorsb #sbindependent
