FEATURED WOMEN IN WINE:
2021 Carboniste Albarino Extra Brut "Gomes Vineyard", California, USA
"I grew up having wine on the table and when young, enjoying a thimble full at special meals. Wine was always a part of the tablescape. So that really informed my way of making wines - which are always approachable and ready to be opened. Don't worry about saving these wines for a special occasion, pop them open after work one day!"
