Description

Bechtholdt Vineyard
Mokelumne River


The Bechthold Vineyard was planted in 1886 and is home to the world's oldest surviving Cinsault vines. The thick-trunked and gnarly twisted vines resemble short trees rather than grape vines. It was also named "Vineyard of the Year" at the 2014 California State Fair. A light-bodied wine with low tannins, seductively perfumed with herbs de Provence, and brimming with mouthwatering flavors of dried cherry, blood orange, rhubarb, a hint of clove, barrel spice, and a rich vibrant glow. This delicate vintage is perfect to pair with a daytime picnic and is best served slightly chilled (50 – 55 ĚŠ F). Buvez!
