Winemaker Notes

The fruit for this dynamic warm weather sipper came from both the 1-acre block of Grenache Blanc in the Casa Blanca Vineyard and the lovely El Camino Real Vineyard down the road. Eschewing the use of barrels, the Grenache Blanc was crafted in stainless steel for a crisp yet fleshy style. The lightest of straw in color with aromas of ripe quince, fragrant white flowers and green apple. Asian pear on the first sip gives way to balanced acidity mid palate. It finishes with lingering notes of honeydew and exotic ginger.

Wine Enthusiast
Very light on the nose, this bottling shows honeysuckle, honeydew and ripe pome fruit on the nose. It's crisp, clean and grippy in texture on the palate, offering rounded flavors of pear and gardenia.

Koehler Winery, California
Koehler Winery sits on a spectacularly beautiful 100 acre estate, surrounded by rolling hills and a small riparian stream that gently nestles its way throughout the property. The estate’s storied history includes ownership by one of the most successful television producers in history, renowned for such iconic shows as The Love Boat, Dynasty and Wonder Woman. It was during this period over 40 years ago that the vineyard was expanded to its current sixty-seven acres. By the time the property was acquired by the Koehler family in 1997, the estate’s bountiful vines and superb fruit were documented as among the best in the famed Santa Ynez Valley. Once the Koehlers recognized that some of the best wines in the valley were being produced with grapes harvested from their vineyards, they resolved to launch their own winery and tasting room. Drawing on their own entrepreneurial experience, the Koehler’s mission was to create a world-class winery committed to making premium wines at affordable prices. Situated on the celebrated Foxen Canyon Wine Trail in the Santa Ynez Valley, Koehler Winery is located in one of California’s most diverse and distinctive growing regions. The micro-climatic diversity on the 100 acre estate results in a superb quality of fruit, and Koehler’s 40 year old vines are recognized as among the best in the Santa Ynez Valley and surrounding area. Winemaker Colin Murphy and Vineyard Manager Felipe Hernandez, one of the most skilled and knowledgeable vineyard managers in Central California, collaborate regularly to ensure the quality of the fruit improves from year to year. The vines are diligently tended, from pruning through harvest, to ensure they thrive in harmony with the natural conditions of the vineyard. Since the Koehlers acquired the property, they have grafted six additional varietals to the original four, and plantings on the estate now include Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Grenache Blanc, Riesling, Syrah, Sangiovese, Grenache, Mourvedre and Viognier.

Santa Ynez Valley Wine

Santa Barbara, California

Ranging from cool and foggy in the west to warm and dry in the east, the Santa Ynez Valley is a climatically diverse growing area. The most expansive AVA within the larger Santa Barbara County region, Santa Ynez is also home to a wide variety of soil types and geographical features. The appellation is further divided into four distinct sub-AVAs—Sta. Rita Hills, Ballard Canyon, Los Olivos District and Happy Canyon—each with its own defining characteristics.

A wide selection of grapes is planted here—more than sixty different varieties, and counting. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir dominate in the chilly west, while Zinfandel, Rhône blends, and Bordeaux blends rule the arid east. Syrah is successful at both ends of the valley, with a lean and peppery, Old-World sensibility closer to the coast and lush berry fruit further inland.

Producing full-bodied white wines, Grenache Blanc can be unctuous and soft or floral and fresh. Some of the finest examples are terroir-driven, age-worthy wines. It is a key ingredient in white Châteauneuf-du-Pape and many white blends across southern France and NE Spain. Somm Secret—Grenache Blanc plays a key role in the vins doux naturels of Rivesaltes and a subsidiary role in those of Banyuls and Maury.
