Circa Trova is Italian for "seek and you will find," which is what we did (for three years) before finding a great vineyard for this rarely (California) grown grape. You'll typically find Vermentino produced on the island of Corsica, western/central Italy or in southern France under the name "Rolle." Our Vermentino comes from the schist and limestone soils of Calaveras County in the Sierra Foothills. These soils paired with the high elevation give this wine a distinct minerality and bright acidity, along with notes of daffodil, grapefruit pith, subtle almond and lime zest.

Our Vermentino grapes were destemmed and pressed into a stainless steel tank where the juice underwent a cool, slow three week fermentation before being racked in old French Oak barrels where it aged for 18 months prior to bottling.
