PAIRING SUGGESTIONS:

Roussanne is an exceptionally food friendly wine. This is largely due to its fruit to acid balance. The aromas and flavors of the wine do not overwhelm the food but rather enhance them. Try our Roussanne with roasted chicken as well as seafood dishes. 


VINEYARD NOTES: Roussanne is a white wine grape grown originally in the Rhone wine region of France, where it is often blended with Marsanne. It is a difficult variety to grow, with vulnerability to mildew, poor resistance to drought and wind, late and/or uneven ripening and irregular yields. 


WINEMAKER - Kestutis Vizgirda

Kestutis "Gus" Vizgirda believes the secret to good winemaking begins in the vineyard. That's why throughout the growing season you will find him touring the rows of varietals and envisioning the kinds of wines he will produce from the harvest.  For over two decades, Vizgirda has worked at several local wineries, working with some of the Valley's best winemakers to refine his craft. Today, he has developed his own unique approach to making wine and has won gold medals for several of his varietals.

In addition to serving as Wilson Creek's Winemaker, Vizgirda teaches wine classes at Mt. San Jacinto College and San Diego State University Extended Studies campus. He is also a judge at several local and international wine competitions.


AWARDS: Orange County Wine Society rates our Roussanne 85pts with a silver medallion.


REVIEWS:

Wine Club Member Patti Matz:

This wine takes me back to hiking in the tropical rain forests of Kauai, Hawaii. While trudging through the tropical fruits I take in the aromas of pineapple and honey.  As I make my way to the beach, I am overwhelmed by mango.  Surfing always brings pineapple notes to my mind, so does this wine.

Wine server Bryan's favorite Pick: "Now that the weather is warming up, the Roussanne is the perfect combination of citrus and floral notes which combine to make it a super refreshing choice for a glass...or bottle! Due to it being crisp but not overly sweet, I think this wine pairs well with a warm day on the porch or sitting poolside."
